20th Annual Soup's On!
: The Alzheimer Society of Perth County recently held its 20th Annual Soup's On fundraiser at the Rotary Recreation Complex in Stratford. Their biggest one yet, with over 3,500 people attending, sampled a great variety of yummy soups, fantastic entertainment and a Soup'er Raffle! Over 50 different organizations and businesses took part, some offering a couple choices of soup for the large crowds that came out to sample and support the cause, with an estimated $45,000 raised! Soup Surreal won this year's People's Choice with their delicious Maple Bacon soup, while Molly Blooms, The Annex Room, Hillside Manor and Fellini's/Mercer Hall were some favourites among the designated judges. Perth Dental Hygiene, Katelyn Atcheson of Sunlife Financial and Stratford Orthodontics were also some selected winners for their homemade soups. Soup's On is the major fundraiser of the year for the Alzheimer Society of Perth County, which provides assistance to help the growing number of people in the community who are living with a diagnosis of Alzheimer Disease. To learn more about the services they provide, please check them out on the web at www.alzheimerperthcounty.com There are LOTS more photos from this year's Soup's On available on our website!
