BBBS fundraiser makes for a soup-er event

Several restaurants are vying for your vote to determine whose soup is best, while the tasting event is aimed at raising funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

For $25 you get all the delicious soup you can eat and a chance to win gift vouchers from some of the island’s popular restaurants.

The third annual Soup-er Bowl will be from noon-6pm Saturday, 5 February, at the Camana Bay Arts and Recreation Centre.

Restaurant competition is on, as last year’s top award went to Guy Harvey’s for their lobster veloute. First- and second-runners-up, respectively, were The Ritz Carlton’s 7 Prime Cuts and Sunset’s lentilicious soup, and the Westin Casuarina Resort & Spa’s crab & roasted corn chowder. Rum Point Restaurant took the most original soup award for their cassava and coconut combination.

Hemant Balgobin, Big Brothers Big Sisters fundraising chair, said the Soup-er Bowl “raises much-needed funds for our mentoring programmes, and participating restaurants get a chance to reach out to potential new customers.”

Sponsors are LIME, the Dart Foundation, dms Broadcasting, Island Supplies, Cayman27, BritCay, Lucozade and FIJI water, IPC Ltd, Digital deSign, Vision Marketing and Cayman News Service.

Adult tickets are $25; children under 12 pay $10. Big brothers and sisters, and their littles get in free.

Tickets available at LIME, Al La Kebab, Abacus, and the BBBS office by calling 945-6315.
