Join us tomorrow night for our scary-good October event! We’ll be hearing from two fabulous presenters: DreamWorld Studios and Young Entrepreneurs Academy. Here’s a little more about them:
DreamWorld Studios is a Lansing-based nonprofit that aims to provide underserved youth with professional instruction in fine and performing arts. They reach out to the community with fine arts college prep, open mic night fundraisers, and even morning dance parties! Tomorrow, they’re joining us to celebrate National Arts and Humanities month and teach us more about the positive impact of arts education. To learn more about DreamWorld Studios, visit their Facebook.
Young Entrepreneurs Academy
Young Entrepreneurs Academy is joining us for a second month. This after-school program teaches local high school students about entrepreneurship. YEA! students conduct research and pitch ideas to investors to launch their own companies. This month’s grant would help YEA! cover student registration fees and turn more students into successful entrepreneurs. For more info on Young Entrepreneurs Academy, check out their website!
We hope you’ll come out and support these two fantastic causes. No matter the outcome, it’s sure to be a good time – with lots of delicious soup! See you soon!
Lettuce Live Well
Lettuce Live Well is a nonprofit established on the principle that nutrition education should be free for everyone. The organization offers free, 90-minute guided grocery store tours led by nutritional coaches, during which participants are given information on shopping for health and affordability. The founders of Lettuce Live Well hope to foster a healthier community by teaching Lansing residents that eating healthfully can be both easy and wallet-friendly. If they were to win this month’s SoupGrant, Lettuce Live Well would return the funds to their participants. The money would be used to purchase reusable grocery bags, recipe and information booklets, and $10 gift cards to the participating grocery store.

Lansing Track Club
The Lansing Area Track club is a nonprofit organization that offers sports to families in south Lansing. Their hope is to reach those who are single parents, have multiple children, or simply cannot afford to allow their children to participate in sports, and make those activities accessible to them. Through participation in the Lansing Track Club, kids learn the importance of team-building and physical activity in a safe, fun environment. If the Lansing Track Club is awarded the June grant, they will put the money toward team uniforms and transportation assistance for working parents. For more information on the Track Club, you can visit their Facebook page here.
