Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 12,for the annual Soup for the Soul fundraiser supporting Bridge to Home. Soup for the Soul – Sera in Italia will be an evening of fresh from the garden soups and delicious delicacies. Local resident and veteran broadcaster Rick Garcia, currently host of My Radio Show with Rick Garcia, will be the master of ceremonies for the evening at Bella Vida.
This annual event is Bridge to Home’s largest fundraising effort. Proceeds will allow the agency to provide services to families and individuals experiencing homelessness in the Santa Clarita community. Bridge to Home has recently expanded the shelter operation to year-round and is preparing the property at the end of Drayton Street to meet that need.
Growing from a community open house at the winter shelter, Soup for the Soul is now an event for several hundred people and an evening filled with fun and delicious food. Following the theme of soup, attendees will be treated to favorites from Salt Creek Grille, Souplantation, Olive Garden, Fish Tail Seafood Grill and Lazy Dog Café. In addition, the following restaurants and businesses are providing appetizers, salads, desserts, wines, and beer: Italia Panetteria & Deli, Marston’s Restaurant, Olive Terrace, Wolf Creek Brewery, Egg Plantation, Spumoni Trattoria & Pizzeria, Piccola Trattoria & Pizzeria, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Old World Deli, The Press Room, Ralphs, Mystic Hills Wines, Kendall-Jackson Wines and barista Danny Silva.
Adding to the fun, there will be lively bidding on fabulous silent auction packages, a live auction featuring trips to Santa Fe, New Mexico and Big Bear, along with a Fund-a Need opportunity when participants can donate directly to support the case management services and the homeless shelter buildings operated by Bridge to Home.
More than 30 local businesses are already signed on as sponsors of this event, including event premium sponsors Stay Green and Sand Canyon Country Club.
