We are excited to announce that we are doing it all again! This October, we will be hosting our 4th event and we could not be more excited. Every time we have held a SOUP event, the community response has been tremendous. We packed the building at Soaring Ridge last time. We would love to see even more people come out this time to support innovative community projects and strengthen the ties that bind us together! Big Lick SOUP is a micro-grant community meal. It is crowdfunding in person. It is a chance for you to have a great time and support some fantastic community projects. Enjoy fantastic food, great people and live entertainment while creating positive change for Roanoke. What to expect: After a brief gathering period where you are encouraged to meet a stranger, you will hear four very short pitches for community-based projects. Then, while eating the delicious food donated by area restaurants, vote for which project you like best. After some local entertainment, we will announce who received the most votes and they will receive all of the money donated at the door. Suggested Donation: $10, but all are welcome. Give less, give more. No one will be turned away.
