OK. Here’s the deal.
You pay $50.
You go to the beautiful-in-any-season Hunter Valley Farm. You select a bowl out of hundreds created by generous East Tennessee artisans. You eat cheese and drink wine while bidding on a better-than-usual silent auction (mostly one-of-the-kind products also donated by local artisans).
You fill your beautiful new bowl with one of four soups. Maybe have a delicious donated dessert. And then you take your bowl and go home.
This is a great, great fundraiser! We were home by 8:30. Since this was last Thursday, I got home in time to see “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice.” Love!

What a fabulous fundraising idea! I bet they made tons of money and many people happy.
I love this Soup-er fundraiser! Great concept and nice casual evening for a worthy cause. It’s popular with Clayton Bank team members – easy to fill a table.
