Join us at The Runway for our August SoupGrant!

It’s our birthday (we’re four years old!) and this year we’re celebrating in style. Our next SoupGrant is on August 17, and it’s NOT at our usual location! Instead, we’ll be at The Runway in downtown Lansing.

Win a prize!

Because it’s our birthday, we’re doing something special. We’re giving away two prizes based on one of the following criteria:

  1. Make a statement. Wear some wild colors, add some unusual flair, put on that ugly sweater, or dress up in your evening finest. Whatever you do, be bold!
  2. Bring a dessert and the recipe. We’re all about sharing and spreading the love, so what better way to celebrate than with desserts to pass around?

Pick one for a chance to win, or do both and double your chances!

About our presenters

We’re bringing back three presenters from the past year to help us celebrate and one will also win the night’s soup grant.

DreamWorld Studios provides 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!

Greater Michigan MDA researches cures for muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related diseases, cares for those affected, and offers support and services to families across greater Michigan.

Tri-County Office on Aging connects people who need help to service providers, volunteers, donors, businesses and governments throughout Eaton, Clinton and Ingham Counties. Many of their services are provided at little or no cost.

43 neuromuscular diseases that MDA treats and researches. There is no fee to attend MDA Summer Camp. Whether on the beach, where plywood is laid and ramps have been built, or at the petting zoo, or bonfire pit– camp offers a fun and safe outdoor experience. Accessible activities range from swimming, boating, adaptive sports, tree climbing, and horseback riding, to less physically demanding programs like arts and crafts, talent shows and casino night.
