JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

We’ve always heard, “the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach.” Habitat for Humanity is counting on this connection as they host their annual Souper Sunday on Sunday, November 6.

The fundraiser runs from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel, located at 2840 S. Caraway Road.

“This is the coveted ladle trophy that we give out each year to the winning restaurant that has the best soup that participants vote on, of course,” Micheal Sullivan, executive director of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Jonesboro. “Exit Realty has helped build this fundraiser to what it is today. We are so thankful for them. And then the other supporters that help donate soup to all of our silent auction items to make it possible. Also, the volunteers who come out and help and the ones that come on build days.”

Souper Sunday includes unlimited soup that is donated by 21 different restaurants. All contributions go toward building safe, decent and affordable homes for qualifying families in need of housing in Jonesboro.

“We’ve got you prepared. We’ve got soup. We’ve got bread, dessert, a drink. You will not leave hungry,” Natalie Fleeman, event organizer said. “We have a silent auction this year. We have about 50 items so we think we’ve done great on that. We are so excited! It will be a great opportunity. If you are in the area, go to church on Sunday morning. This is something you can swing by after church, bring the whole family.”

Votes will be taken for favorite soup and the winning chef or restaurant wins bragging rights and the coveted soup ladle trophy for the year.

Tickets are $10.

“They are on sale at the door,” Fleeman said. “You can also get your kids in for free if they are five years or younger. So, we want the whole community to come out and support us. We just can’t wait.”

Tickets can be purchased during the event and they are available now by calling Sullivan at 870-203-9898 or by visiting the office at 520 West Monroe Street in Jonesboro.
