Thank you to everyone who joined us on Sunday, November 8, 2015 at the very lovely Oxford Mills for our first soup of the 2015-2016 school year, with a special election theme, "Rock" the Vote!
We had a great crowd of educators, education supporters and friends who came together to enjoy supper and learn about innovative classroom ideas in need of funding.
Your ticket sales and a matching grant from PhilaSoup raised $1,195 in support of Philadelphia education. We heard from three great presenters - Jordan Hager "Fairy Tale Retellings", Elizabeth Richards "Designing and Creating an Autism Support Sensory Room" and Ed Turner "Podcastius."
Then we took the theme to heart and placed a rock in the jar to vote for our favorite projects!
We tallied the votes and you awarded $622.50 to Jordan, $343.50 to Elizabeth and $229 to Ed!
Thank you to everyone who came out, to Metropolitan Bakery, Soup Kitchen Cafe, Super Fresh, Insomnia Cookies, Honeygrow, Oxford Mills, Jordan Bickhart, our fabulous musician, Amy Leigh photography and Photobot 3000 for the fantastic support to make our first soup event of the year a success!
