Soup sampler to support community charity

Staff, faculty, and students have a unique opportunity next week to support the local community, enjoy a warming winter lunch, and demonstrate allegiance to an academic division — all at once!

The campus campaign for United Way will hold the Great Faculty Soup-off during lunch Wednesday, Nov. 28, in the student centre’s Alumni Auditorium.

Everyone who buys admission for just $8 will sample eight soups and vote for their favourite — each sponsored by a faculty. The doors open at 11:30 a.m. and organizers will admit only the first 400 patrons.

The proceeds will support the United Way. The charity keeps all contributions in Windsor-Essex to invest in three priorities: reducing poverty, helping kids to succeed in school and in life, and strengthening neighbourhoods.
