Soup’s On raises $35,000 for local Red Cross services

Soup’s On, the signature fundraising event for the American Red Cross-Outagamie Chapter, raised nearly $35,000 for local services.

The 17th annual Soup’s On was held Jan. 20th at the Grand Meridian in Appleton. The funds raised through ticket sales, silent auction, raffles and corporate sponsorships support a variety of local Red Cross services, including disaster relief, services to the Armed Forces, shopping and errand services for homebound older adults and disabled individuals and life-saving health and safety education and training.

“Raising $35,000 in our challenging economic environment is a huge success,” said Chapter Executive Director Tony Gonzalez. “We really appreciate everyone who came out to help us raise funds to assist over 10,000 people who receive chapter services every year.”

Gonzalez also thanked the event volunteers, the restaurants who donated food and other food items for the event and local businesses who purchased sponsorships or donated items for the silent auction. “Everyone working together made this event a huge success,” he said.
