The 16th annual Soups for Shelter event benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Delaware & Union Counties will be held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 22 in the St. Mary School Beitel Commons, 66 E. William St., Delaware.

According to press release issued by Habitat for Humanity, 100 percent of the proceeds from this year’s event will help the nonprofit organization break ground in 2018 on homes in both Delaware and Union counties.

As for the annual Soups for Shelter benefit dinner, area artists, schools and colleges have created over 400 handmade ceramic bowls for attendees to select from.

With bowl in hand, customers will be able to enjoy multiple bowls of soup and desserts, all of which have been donated by 24 local restaurants.

The press release states the Soups for Shelter event is one of Habitat for Humanity’s most successful fundraisers thanks to sponsorships from local businesses.

There is a $15 charge per ticket, which includes a handmade ceramic bowl (while supplies last), homemade soup, bread, dessert and a beverage. Children 10 years of age and younger eat for free.

Carryout orders will be available at the “Soups-to-Go” window, and the event will also feature a silent auction and a 50/50 drawing, both of which will close at 7 p.m.
