The Holliston Pantry Shelf’s 11th annual SOUPer Bowl was a runaway success

February 20, 2018

The Holliston Pantry Shelf is pleased to report that it’s 11th annual SOUPer Bowl was a runaway success! This was the second year the SOUPer Bowl was held at Christ the King Lutheran Church. Ticket sales and attendance was at an all time high. Attendees enjoyed unlimited Soup donated by local businesses, and had the opportunity to win donated raffle baskets and participate in a live auction for 2018/2019 Patriots tickets.


Holliston residents of all ages enjoy unlimited soups, bread and desserts.


Holliston Pantry Shelf Board member, Debbie Kerrigan, is joined by Holliston High School students at the raffle basket table. Local businesses and families donated 20 baskets, each with its own theme.


The event featured unlimited baked goods and desserts


Holliston Pantry Shelf student Board members Michaela Campbell and Alexis Murphy serve their shifts at the dessert table.


SOUPer Bowl auction baskets raised a significant amount of money for the Pantry.


Holliston resident and pantry volunteer Frank Caron is first in line for his soup served by ‘celebrity’ servers !

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a huge success.

What a great fundraiser! It was (literally) standing room only to support the Pantry Shelf. And the students doing the place settings and cleanup were incredibly hard workers. I eagerly anticipate the Souper Bowl every year, thanks to all for another "super" one!
