When: Thursday, October 5, 2017 - 6:00am
Where: Kerbela Temple - 315 Mimosa Ave

Knoxville SOUP is looking for community-focused projects throughout Knox County that could use some cash to get cooking.

The next SOUP micro-funding event will take place Thursday, Oct. 5, at Kerbela Shriners of Knoxville, 315 Mimosa Ave. Deadline to enter a project is Thursday, Sept. 28.

SOUP is a grassroots organization that holds quarterly events at rotating locations to help raise money for projects that will benefit the community. Neighborhood and community groups, nonprofits, businesses and individuals are welcome to submit their projects for consideration.

Up to four projects are chosen to present at each event. Attendees listen to the proposals, then dine on a meal of soup and salad, discuss the projects and vote for their favorite.

The project with the most votes wins the take from the door. (A donation of $5 per person is suggested for entry.) At the most recent SOUP, the South Knoxville Community Center and Montgomery Village Residents Association tied and split the pot of $814.

The SOUP application consists of four simple questions and is available at For the Oct. 5 event, doors will open at 6 p.m. and presentations will begin at 6:30 p.m.
