Soup’s on for Vernon Mission

Third annual Soup’s On in Jan. 24

Get in from the cold and warm the body and heart this winter with the third annual Soup’s On competition.

Nine local businesses will be competing in one of Vernon’s highly-anticipated culinary showdowns Thursday, Jan. 24. Guests are encouraged to taste each soup and vote to award a business with the title of People’s Choice.

Soup’s On is presented by Enactus Okanagan College and sponsored by Prospera Credit Union. Once again Enactus OC is partnering with the Vernon Upper Room Mission to raise funds for their organization. To date, Soup’s On has raised $10,000 for Enactus OC and the Upper Room Mission and this year the proceeds will help revamp the Upper Room Mission’s community garden.

“The competition is going to be the toughest yet,” says project manager Abby Lagerquist. “Many businesses have already been preparing and testing their soups.”

Last year’s winner, Intermezzo will be returning to hold onto their title, along side the second and third place winners, The Kal and Basket Case Picnics.

“As a participant in Soup’s On, we were very impressed with the set up and traffic that the event brought. It was great to see many businesses get together for a nice and healthy competition. We enjoyed mingling with the guests and other participating businesses. Enactus has really done an amazing job with this event and we can’t wait to be back again for Soup’s On 2019,” said David Scarlatescu of The Fig Bistro.

This year’s competition will see an evening filled with unforgettable soup, live entertainment, door prizes, silent auction and a cash bar. This is a 19-plus event. Tickets are $30 each and are available through Eventbrite, Prospera Credit Union or Enactus Okanagan College’s Facebook page.

To donate a silent auction item or for more information, contact Enactus Okanagan College through Facebook messenger.
