Women Build to host Soupapalooza benefit for Habitat
Women Build, along with Commonwealth Skybar, is planning a fundraiser for Habitat called "Soupapalooza" on Saturday, March 21 from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm at Commonwealth Skybar. This event will feature a Battle of the Soups between Charlottesville's best restaurants, with the winner taking home the "Golden Soup Bowl" trophy. The general public will be able to purchase tickets for $20 each, which will grant access to tastings of each soup, a full-size portion of their favorite soup, and extended happy hour specials at the Skybar!
Even if you can't attend, please share this event with your friends -- Habitat will be the beneficiary of all proceeds from the event!
For more information, sponsorship opportunities, and to purchase tickets, please visit the Soupapalooza website or contact Shannon Wampler, Chair of Women Build.
