From Keely Krantz
The Holliston Pantry Shelf SOUPer Bowl 2020 will be held on Saturday, February 1 from 5 – 7:30 pm at Christ The King Lutheran Church, located at 600 Central Street in Holliston, MA. Holliston residents and those of surrounding communities are encouraged to gather together and enjoy delicious soups donated by local businesses. The SOUPer Bowl is celebrating its 13th year and is the single largest fundraising event for the Holliston Pantry Shelf.
“We are so grateful to all of the individuals and businesses that support us year after year in our largest annual fundraiser,” said Keely Krantz, President of Holliston Pantry Shelf. “The proceeds from this event go directly toward helping the 200 families in town that rely on our community for food assistance.”
The SOUPer Bowl dinner features gourmet soups donated by local businesses. Fresh breads, beverages and desserts are also included in the meal. Guests will also have a chance to win exciting prizes in a raffle drawing that features goods and services donated by local businesses and individual families.
Soups from the following businesses will be featured this year:
- Corner Market
