Habitat for Humanity’s Souper Bowl to be held Saturday, February 1
Ceramic art students from East and West high schools created more than 325 ceramic bowls for a fundraiser that has become a Madison tradition. The bowls are part of the 18th annual Souper Bowl fundraiser held Saturday, February 1, from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m. at West High School, 30 Ash St. More than 1,200 people attend the event where money raised goes to support Habitat for Humanity of Dane County’s UW-Madison student chapter.
“The ceramic bowls created by the high school students at East and West high schools are an important part of our fundraiser,” said Valerie Johnson, CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Dane County. “A big thank you to the students who put in a tremendous amount of time and effort into making this a wonderful community event.”
Souper Bowl is an evening of food, art, and entertainment, bringing the Madison community together to support Habitat for Humanity of Dane County. Cost is $15 for a bowl, which includes a meal of soup, salad, bread and dessert; or $35 for a family of four, which includes two bowls and four meals. Larger and more decorative bowls are sold at a silent Pro Bowl auction.
The UW-Madison student chapter of Habitat for Humanity of Dane County is currently building its 14th student-built home in north Madison, off Sherman Avenue. Find more information here.
