Soup’s On fundraiser was an “overwhelming” success
The grand total raised from Chatham Hope Haven’s recent Soup’s On fundraiser was $8185.13.
The organization said the event was an “overwhelming” success.
The Knights of Columbus and Catholic Women’s League hosted the fundraiser and the Chatham Kent Realtor’s Association sponsored and sent a troop of volunteers.
“Thanks to all the folks who came out, enjoyed the soup and fellowship, and donated so generously to the haven,” stated Chatham Hope Haven in a media release.
Hub International also contributed advertising funds and volunteers, as well as Crock a Doodle, Face Painting by Cindy, and the reunited Country Drifters.
It is estimated that 700-800 folks ate at the Spirit & Life Centre and 200-300 came over for a tour. The volunteers at Chatham Hope Haven had a slow start, but then described the crowd as a “tidal wave of people.”
