Big SOUP 2008 was frightful (the weather, that is)! The temperature dropped and at 3:00 in the afternoon the roads were icy and dangerous. By 6:00 most of the roads were drivable, but there were still many friends who were not able to make the trip in. In spite of the ice and cold the 2008 Big SOUP Party set the new record for money raised for the GPCFB! We raised $1210.00 (w00t!) for the food bank. 136 friends made the trek for soup through the ice and wind (37 kids). We started the party at 6:00 PM for the first time and the last guests left at 2:30 AM. The Black Bean was the favorite of the evening. We kicked the Black Bean and the Spicy Peanut soups. Prizes were given at 9:30 for David L's hand carved face bowl and spoon, Noa L's big spoon, and to Paul H. for traveling from Washington county. Michael N's tri-bowl, Eileen F's candle bowl, Todd's Santa Boot bowl, Kate P's snoopy spoon, and Kyra B's tiny tiny bowl all received honorable mentions.
