BAYarts SOUPer Bowl to benefit programming

Soups from local chefs will be available to taste during BAYarts' SOUPer Bowl fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 4. 

The latest BAYarts benefit will keep you well fed. For those unfamiliar with what a SOUPer Bowl is, it's just as it sounds.

For a $10 ticket, visitors get a drink, crusty bread from Breadsmith of Lakewood, a handmade bowl (crafted in the BAYarts ceramic department) and, of course, soups. The event will be a bit of a soup cook-off, with caterers, private chefs and restaurants all offering their best recipes. Votes will be tallied as the day progresses. Want to prove your soup is a winner? Email Pam Mills,, to get involved. 

Tickets for the Feb. 4 event are expected to sell out, and can be purchased by calling 440-871-6543 or online by visiting the "upcoming events" page. The event will be open between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., with an ability for ticketholders to stop by any time during that span.

The event will benefit the ever-growing education department. With so many outdoor events in the summer, the SOUPer Bowl creates a winter happening to help combat seasonal inactivity and stagnation that keep people in their homes. "Our students, and the community, love giving back and spending time at our amazing campus. We knew we wanted to organize something to help people get out and have a good time together," said BAYarts Executive Director Nancy Heaton. And if conversation and good food isn't enough for you, there will be a few activities for the younger set.

Kids will enjoy the ball toss game and a photo area. Drinks, hotdogs and snacks will be available a la carte. There will also be a bake sale.

"BAYarts thanks all who support their community endeavors," conveys Heaton. "So we hope you'll come enjoy this fun benefit day!"
