Souper Bowl XXIII will be held at Madison West High School on Saturday, Feb. 2 from 12-6 p.m. The community soup feast has become a Madison tradition since 1995 and is the largest fundraiser for the UW-Madison student chapter of Habitat for Humanity of Dane County. Last year’s event served more than 1,400 attendees over 200 gallons of soup!
Attendees begin by choosing a locally-made ceramic bowl from hundreds of handmade bowls displayed. After choosing a bowl, attendees receive the soup of their choice, salad, bread and desserts. Next, attendees enjoy a wide-variety of entertainment including celebrity soup servers, an acapella singing group, the UW marching band and Bucky Badger, to name a few.
The cost is $15 for a bowl (soup, salad, bread and dessert included) or $35 for a family of four (four meals and two bowls included).
This 23rd annual event started in 1995 with 50 attendees. Last year’s event was attended by more than 1,400 and raised more than $29,000 to help build affordable housing throughout Dane County.
