VOA empty bowl fundraiser @ Sheridan County Fairgrounds exhibit hall
Apr 28 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Volunteers of America annual “soup festival” fundraiser is planned for Thursday from 5-7:30 p.m. at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds exhibit hall.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the VOA Sheridan Community Homeless Shelter.

A wide variety of homemade soups prepared and served by different community churches and other organizations will be featured at the event. It will also include live music, face painting and games for the kids.

In addition, you get to take home your handcrafted soup bowl, made by community members.

The event is meant to imitate a “simple” dinner one might have at a soup kitchen. The bowls are taken home to serve as a reminder of homelessness.

Tickets for the event are available at the door. They cost $25 for families, $10 for adults and $5 for kids; children 5 and younger get in free.

For more information, call Skye Heeren at 672-0475. The Sheridan County Fairgrounds exhibit hall is located at 1753 Victoria St.
