Soup and More’s first annual Christmas in July Benefit concert was a tremendous success because of the wonderful support from so many local businesses.
With the generous donations given, Soup&More has received over $2,100 in cash. This will be used to continue financing the Fourth Sunday Community Dinners,
Food for Thought Friday night suppers and enabling McDonough County families to have some free groceries. Our financial sponsors of $100.00 or more were the following: Mike & Melissa Inman and family, Project HOPE, El Rancherito Restaurant, Girl Friday Office Services, Matt Glaser with American Family Insurance, Ron Elbe Auto Sales, Best Western Plus, Kunes Country Auto Sales, Cathy Early with State Farm Insurance, STC Investments, Wesley Village, M&M Vending, McDonough District Hospital, and EPH Service Company.
There were also financial patrons who gave between $25 – 99.00: Engraving by Lin, Kreative Kuts, A-1 Security Lock Shop, Copy-Pack-Post (Barsi/Depoy), Nelson’s Clothing, Gamage TV & Appliances, Barnyard Guitars and Furniture Outlet & Bedding.
This event could not have happened without the thoughtfulness of our in-kind sponsors helping us underwrite the event. Their gifts bring the total raised to just over $2,600! Our in-kind donors were Old Dairy, tjr Graphic Design, HyVee, Western Distributing, Wal-Mart, Calvary Baptist Church and Dough Delights.
We would like to especially thank our musical talent for volunteering the evening’s entertainment. How fun it was to hear artists Mark Wheeler, the Johnson family, Fred Railsback, the Whitson family, John Draws with his Muddy Creek Guitars and the Calvary Baptist Praise Band. There was a lot of joy & laughter throughout the concert thanks to these talented folks.
Please support and thank all those listed here who, in their generosity, have helped decrease food insecurities for McDonough County families.
