What: Knoxville SOUP
When: Thursday, July 27, 2017 - 6:00pm
Where: South Knoxville Community Center, 522 Maryville Pike

Knoxville SOUP is a dinner to benefit and unite the community. Up to four individuals or groups that need money to help with a project intended to make a positive impact on the community make brief presentations and field questions about their projects. Attendees listen and then eat dinner -- soup, salad and extras -- while mulling over the projects and getting to know their table-mates. They then vote on their favorite project, and the proposal with the most votes gets the pot from the door. (A $5 donation is suggested per person.) At the last SOUP, Marble Springs State Historic Site won $830 for its Educational School Tour project.
