Ideas Welcome: South Shore Chamber Plans Second Micro-Granting Dinner Event

From the South Shore Chamber of Commerce …

It’s that time again for another South Shore Soup event!

  • Time: 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Place: Polonez Restaurant – St. Francis

(If registering children 12 and under, please email infossccwi@gmail.com or call 414-483-8615 and leave a message with this information)

Deadline to Submit Application: January 30, 2019. Winners will be contacted on February 3, 2019.

PLEASE EMAIL infossccwi@gmail.com for an application, or visit ssccwi.com under the Events link and find the application within the registration link.

How to attend: For a donation of $10 for adults (children 12 and under are free), attendees receive a variety of hearty soup, salad, bread, desert and they VOTE for a grantee. Pr-registration is recommended to get a count for the food.

  • How it works: At the Soup dinner you hear from four presentations ranging from art, urban agriculture, social entrepreneurs, education, technology and more in hopes the attendees will “grant” them the proceeds from the soup dinner for their cause.
  • What is the process: Each presenter has four minutes to share their idea and answer four questions from the audience. At the event, attendees eat, talk, share resources, enjoy and vote on the project they think most benefits the cities most. At the end of the night we count the ballots and the winner goes home with all the attendee registration money raised to carry out their project.

Winners come back to a future Soup dinner to report their projects progress. (Next event will be held in April 2019.)
