The Souper Bowls of Hope lunch time fundraiser took place on April 4 at the Crystal Gardens. According to Michele Davis approximately 380 people were expected to attend.
Participants were treated to gourmet soup from a variety of local restaurants and a hand made bowl to take home.
This year’s fundraiser was in support of the Youth Empowerment Society with the goal of reaching $100,000.
“People love this event and I love the energy,” said Davis. “I’m really looking forward to seeing everybody again.”
Katrina Archibale, chef at 10 Acre, served up some chicken tortilla soup for her first time at Souper Bowls of Hope along with volunteers from the Victoria Police Department and the Fire Department.
“I’m really happy to be here at an event that’s community related because that’s what our [restaurant] is — serving local food to locals.”
Victoria High’s R&B Band was on hand as well sharing their sound with all the participants.
