Berry College SOUP-Off Raises a Tasty $3,000 for Charity | Schools
ROME, GA -- Approximately 350 people at Berry College recently used their tastebuds to raise more than $3,000 for orphans in Uganda.
The second annual Berry SOUP-Off was held on Thursday, Oct. 21. Students, faculty and staff faced off with their best soup recipes, producing 38 culinary creations for taste-testing.
The Golden Bowl Award was presented to Berry junior Lindsay Larkin for her impressive baked potato soup. The Silver Spoon went to the B.E.S.T. Team for their gumbo, and the Choice Award was given to the Biology Club's curried pumpkin soup.
Special recognition went to Berry President Briggs' carrot ginger soup and the Berry Accounting Association's chili.
Proceeds from the SOUP-Off went to the Sponsorship of Orphans in Uganda Project (SOUP). This money will help provide food, medical care, education, shelter and clothing to underprivileged children in Uganda.
Berry student Brin Enterkin founded SOUP last year after visiting the country and witnessing its immense need. Through the Experiential Learning International program, SOUP is able to wire the donations directly to Iganga, Uganda.
