According to Soup’s On! Co-Chairs Charlotte Legg and Christi Nicolas,
“As co-chairs of this year’s 8th annual Stewpot Alliance Soup’s On! Luncheon and Art Sale, our greatest wish this holiday season is to invite all of Dallas to come and experience what’s happening at the Stewpot. This year, the Stewpot is celebrating 40 years of service, providing meals, resources, support and encouragement to our homeless and at-risk neighbors, including a full range of health and human services, youth activities, arts, music and educational programs for individuals and families in need. Most recently, the Stewpot and its partners birthed Encore Park and Amphitheater, an urban renewal project encompassing community gardens, performance and artist’s spaces, and in the future, housing for collaborative programs and agencies working to support the Stewpot.
“Soups On! is the only source of fundraising contributing directly to these innovative programs. The luncheon will be held on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 (11 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.) at downtown Dallas’ historic Union Station. Honorary Chairs Micki and Mayor Mike Rawlings will be joined by keynote speaker Collins Tuohy, whose family was chronicled in ‘The Blind Side.’ The work of acclaimed Stewpot Artists will be featured and sold at the event. To learn more about the luncheon and purchase tickets, go to www.SoupsOnDallas.com.
