Holy minestrone! Soup season is fast approaching – and with it, one of Central Arkansas’s most beloved events. Mark your calendars and plan to join us from 4 – 7 p.m. on February 24, 2019 at the Statehouse Convention Center for the 38th annual Little Rock Soup Sunday!
It’s easy to see why everyone loves this casual, family-friendly, “souper” fun event. Between 1,500 – 2,000 soup lovers join us each year to knock back delicious soups, breads and desserts from Central Arkansas’s favorite restaurants. (We can’t wait to see what this year’s featured chef, Jeff Owen of Ciao Baci, is spooning up for our guests!) Silent and live auctions will please even the most discriminating of shoppers, we’ll have activities for the kids, and there’ll be music to keep people of all ages on the dance floor. Event chairs Krishna Ellington and Kirby Miraglia invite you to bring your friends and family, grab your muffin tin (“Um…what?” Don’t worry, here’s an explainer) and get ready to have a great time!
Best of all, there’s no more important cause: the future of Arkansas’s kids. Proceeds benefit AACF’s work to ensure that all children have the resources and opportunities they need to lead healthy, productive lives and to reach their full potential.
Regular admission adult tickets are $35 in advance – $40 at the door. Tickets for children ages 5 – 17 are $10, and children under 5 get in FREE!
Patron tickets are $60 each – that’ll get you access to the Patron Room, where you’ll enjoy soup and special goodies from Ciao Baci that won’t be available in the main ballroom, plus complimentary beer and wine. And of course, you don’t have to stay in the Patron Room – you’ll also have access to all the soups, snacks, auctions, and fun we can pack into the main ballroom. What’s not to like?
