We had a great turn out and many attendees said it was one of the best yet.

The Kiwanis Club would like to thank everyone that supported this year’s 9th Annual Soup It Up! and Craft Fair event. With about 400 attendees throughout the day of March 1, 2015, the event was a huge success.

With close to $5000 raised, the money will be put towards scholarship funds for local Key Club members. Key Club is an international student-led organization with clubs at many high schools around the world.

People’s Choice Soup Award goes to Soverign Restaurant with their delicious butternut squash soup. An honorable mention goes to Larry’s Diner for their cream of chicken and rice soup.

This event could not take place without the generous support of the restaurants that donated soup, so The Kiwanis Club thanks the following restaurants for the generosity and support:

Southern Belle’s, Delicia Mexican Grill, Nabby’s, Larry’s Diner, Westfield Family Restaurant, Fox’s Pub, Katie O’Connor’s Pint House & Eatery, Durbin’s of Plainfield, Sovereign and Cedarlake Village

Another thank you goes out to the generous sponsors of this event:

More thank yous to the volunteers of the event who donated their time, the businesses and individuals that donated prizes for the silent auction items, the dancers that performed at the event, the crafters who manned the booths and the North Plainfield High School for hosting the event.
