Souper Bowl Raises Record Amount

With your help and support, the UW-Madison student chapter of Habitat for Humanity of Dane County raised a record-breaking $42,400 (including a $20,000 matching grant from State Farm Insurance) during it’s Souper Bowl event on Saturday, Feb. 3 — the highest ever in it’s history! All funds raised will go wards the Habitat UW-Madison Campus Chapter’s student-funded home in Madison’s Owl Creek neighborhood. This home will be the 23rd home the chapter has built since starting Souper Bowl in 1995.
A Madison tradition since 1995, this community soup feast is the largest fundraiser for the UW-Madison student chapter of Habitat for Humanity of Dane County!
The Souper Bowl is an afternoon of family-friendly fun and philanthropy. For $25, attendees will receive a take-home ceramic bowl, warm soup, salad, and bread. While families of four can join the festivities for $50 and receive four hearty meals and two take-home ceramic bowls. The event offers live entertainment, from celebrity soup servers to acapella performances, and an appearance by beloved Bucky Badger.
A heartfelt thank you to event sponsor State Farm Insurance for their generous support as the Souper Bowl matching sponsor! State Farm will match all Souper Bowl donations up to $20,000. Their commitment amplifies the impact of every contribution, so each bowl of soup and donation went twice as far in forwarding Habitat’s mission.
State Farm supports local Habitat for Humanity affiliates in developing innovative strategies to engage young people outside of the traditional home-building volunteer experience. Thank you for making this event a success. We are deeply appreciative of your support!
