On March 13, 2013 we held our First Annual Stone Soup fundraiser in downtown Winnipeg. Why are we thinking about this today? Well, we are finally getting to say thank you!
For our first run, we could not have asked for more success – together with our community we raised over $14,000. The lobby of the Manitoba Hydro building was packed with people for hours, and we sold out of every single soup before the event was done. Our partners and participants were incredibly generous and supportive, and we are looking forward to working with everyone again.
We also had the pleasure of hosting guests of honour from Sister MacNamara school. These creative students wrote a book for us about their day at Stone Soup. Take a look through selections from the book here. Enjoy!
By the way, follow us on facebook for information on our upcoming awareness event Stuff the School Bus at Polo Park mall’s centre court, this August 22-24th.
