Stand by for more details about Teen SOUP!
As usual, all attendees must RSVP before the event and we will be collecting RSVP payments online, in advance of the event. We will still have our raffle for 2nd place, don’t forget to bring some extra singles!
Join us at Amelita Mirolo Barn in Upper Arlington for a really unique experience focusing on Teen-led initiatives in Columbus!
This will be a unique experience for the #greenspoonarmy and we’re excited for the energy the Barn will bring to our Fall event.
At Columbus SOUP, we want to ensure that every project has just as much chance of winning the SOUP grant. To help with this, we choose a focusing theme for each of our quarterly events. In the past, we’ve focused on Art & Culture, Community Gardens, Community Empowerment, Women’s Empowerment, Childhood Enrichment, Environmental Initiatives, and Education. We chose our themes from feedback provided by our attendees through a survey after each event.
The theme for this Fall’s SOUP is Teen Initiatives!
We change venues with each SOUP event and each venue has limited seating. In order to comply with fire-code restrictions, we must limit the amount of people that can attend. To ensure everyone has a good time, and no one has to be turned away at the door, we require everyone to secure an RSVP and donation before arriving at a SOUP event.
We get some pretty amazing sponsors lined up, so we always expect our events to “sell out” of RSVPs quickly. Every unsold RSVP at the event means at least $7 less for our grant recipient… and let’s be honest, that’s not fun for anyone. By giving an RSVP and donating, you’re letting us know that you’ll be at the event and we, and our applicants, can rely on your $7 donation.
Stay tuned for more info on who will be sponsoring SOUP! We will return to our usual format of restaurants and amazing raffle partners.
We hold RSVPs until shortly before the event. The seating capacity at each event is always determined by the venue who donates space to us, so seating is limited. We’ve found in the past that as many as 200 RSVPs can “sell out” in as little as two days, so get your seat while you!
RSVPs will open shortly before the event! Be sure to get yours below before we sell out!
