South Shore Soup Micro-Granting Dinner Returns

I love this! From the South Shore Chamber of Commerce

South Shore Soup: 4 p.m. on April 28 at Milwaukee Gourmet House, 800 Milwaukee Ave. in South Milwaukee.

South Shore Soup is a micro-granting soup dinner supporting creative projects in Cudahy, St. Francis, and South Milwaukee; the communities that make up the South Shore Chamber. This innovative micro-granting event has been done throughout the Country and in Milwaukee.

Please email infossccwi@gmail.com for an application.

Tickets can be purchased online at ssccwi.com

PLEASE RSVP ON OR BEFORE Friday, April 26, 2019

Deadline to Submit Application: Sunday, April 21, 2019. Winners will be contacted on April 22, 2019.

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.
