BEAVERTON — On Oct. 5, the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon and the City of Beaverton will host the third annual Soup’s On, a soup tasting event to benefit the Oregon Food Bank.
Soup’s On will be held 5 p.m.-8 p.m. in the Valley Catholic High School gymnasium. Local vendors provide soups, desserts, wine and coffee for the annual tasting event. Guests vote on their favorite soups, and awards are presented to the top three vote-getters.
Tickets are available now at www.ssmo.org/events/SoupsOn.php. In the past two years, the proceeds from the event have provided 57,000 meals for hungry families in our region.
Now in its third year, Soup’s On draws nearly 500 people each year. Guests have included U.S. Senator Ron Wyden and Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle. Reporter Joe Smith of KGW NewsChannel 8 will be the 2013 Soup’s On emcee.
