Winter SOUP Wrap-Up

We sure can’t.

We also can’t wrap our heads around the idea that we sold out our theatre at the Gateway Film Center? You all came out in droves to support us, and from the bottom of our very grateful hearts, we thank you. We know that a small handful of you were turned away because the theatre’s occupancy had been met; we hope you’ll still be our supporters, and we’d like to guarantee those few people a seat at our next event. If you were turned away at our Winter Event, please drop us a note at, and we’ll save you a seat for next time.


The Columbus SOUP team is busy gathering your feedback to make our next event even better and to iron out any hiccups that may have happened at Winter SOUP. We know we’re not perfect, but we hope that everyone has a great time at our events and remembers what the true spirit of SOUP is all about—funding projects that make Columbus a better place… together. We’ll have details about our Spring SOUP soon, and in the meantime, check out these stats from our last event. You guys made this happen!
