2 Great Events

This year for the first time, Soup Day will be held at Spartanburg Marriott. The night before we host the First Dibs: Preview Party. Check out both events. This is where we raise the money the feed the needy — by selling the bowls, eating soup, listening to live music, and enjoying the fellowship. Join us in our fight to end hunger in Spartanburg.
