The night's soup was a creamy
potato leek soup donated by the The Mint, savory/sweet bread from Great Harvest Bread Co. , a pastry and from Lifelawn Gardens fresh radish sprouts besides the proceeds from a keg of beer donated by local Pearl Street Brewery.
After all the evening's proceeds were counted, a whopping $2280 would accompany the Giant Soup Spoon to the most popular pitch.
As a refresher/in case you missed the July posting, four pitches are made to the gathered community and the attendees will make their entrance ticket/ballot of their choice for the micro financing.
The night's four pitches included:
1. YMCA FOOD FOREST: An edible Forest : a year round garden planted street side starting this year in front of the YWCA. Monies would help with plantings and public workshops. Community passerbys could help themselves to the produce. The gals seated around me decided they liked would love to volunteer to help after seeing the organizer. He was very impassioned to educate the public re: growing their own food/ food for others ... DOING GOOD.

'Do good' seems to be the perfect motto for La Crosse SOUP.
Even your city can
'do good' with this community micro financing idea.
* I almost forgot to thank the newest addition to last Wednesday night's gathering - MUSIC. A big shout out to the musicians who added to the festive atmosphere.
