The 2012 “Souper Supper” sponsored by the Chewelah Arts Guild was a success. The crowd enjoyed nine delicious, flamboyant soups, homemade bread and a variety of tasty cookies.
Colorful baskets, framed photographs and teddy bears were some of the items available for the silent auction. In addition, music provided by Doug McQuain added to the festivities.
Thanks to the generosity of terrific soup chefs, bakers and donations for the auction, the event generated approximately $1200. The Arts Guild will use the money to fund the Rainbow Mini-grants and the high school scholarship.
The Pencil Drawing entries adorned the walls of the Civic Center during the Soup Supper and they were moved to the main hall in City Hall. They will be there until April 6, 2012.
Once again the community came together to have fun and celebrate the Arts.
A total of 99 artists from six School Districts participated in the contest. Award money totaling $1270 was paid by an anonymous donor. Over 50 volunteer hours were donated by the members of the Chewelah Arts Guild.
