Crowdfunding, for Community Good: South Shore Soup Set for Sunday

From the South Shore Chamber of Commerce …

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

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.

  • Sunday, February 16, 2020
  • Time: 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (Dinner served at 4:30 with presentations after and dessert at 5:30 p.m.)
  • Cudahy United Methodist Church, 5865 S. Lake Drive, Cudahy, WI 53110

RSVP by registering the number of adults and children over age 12 or email infossccwi@gmail.com. Please email if children age 12 and under will be attending. If you email your attendance, payment will be due upon arrival to the event.

PLEASE RSVP ON OR BEFORE 12:00 p.m. Saturday, February 15, 2020

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, dessert 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.

My ask: Let’s stand up for South Milwaukee!

The South Milwaukee Theatre Company won funding at the last event, and I’m told the South Milwaukee Leo Club application will present this time on a project to provide blankets to hospital patients and get more young adults involved in service work by engaging them with a blanket-making project.

Stop by, enjoy some great food, and support a great cause!
