Souper Supper began in 2000 when the Network realized the community's low-income population needed more help than the FWCCN could provide on its own. The supper is the largest contributing fundraiser to our annual budget, and goes a long way towards helping us complete our mission.
Each year, for the first 15 years, in late October, members of the community gathered at Steel Lake Presbyterian Church for this fabulous, fun event. In 2015, the 16th Annual Souper Supper changed to a new location: Saghalie Middle School. Attendees, as always, were treated to over a dozen varieties of soup, all donated by local restaurants and grocers. Rolls, beverages and desserts are also provided. And to add to the fun, there have been auctions/raffles during the evening! This year we have returned to Steel Lake Presbyterian Church for our 17th Annual Event. Raffle tickets are being sold at $20.00 each for a Pot O' Gold prize of $1,000. Only 250 tickets will be sold and each ticket includes a $10.00 coupon to Jimmy Mac's in Federal Way.
This is the Caregiving Network’s main fundraiser. Proceeds support our Emergency Services and Meals Programs which assist our neighbors with low, often poverty-level, incomes with food, rent, shelter, gasoline and other basic needs for daily survival.
Our goal is to help our neighbors stay in their homes, stave off hunger and provide some of the necessities that most people take for granted.
