Prattville Annual Soup Cook-Off Fundraiser 

Team Registration Form


There’s nothing better than a cup of hot soup in the winter--except a cup of hot soup and a handmade bowl created by a local artist. And to make it even better, all proceeds go to a great cause. 

 

The Prattauga Art Guild is planning its annual “Art with a Heart” fundraising event on Saturday, February 23, to benefit the Autauga Interfaith Care Center food bank. This tasty event will feature a Soup Cook-Off with teams and individuals competing for awards while raising money to help with the needs of our community. Local artists have donated handcrafted and custom painted bowls and local restaurants have generously donated soup for this event. 

 

Come out and taste the homemade soups from our competing teams and help select the People’s Choice Award. The soup teams will compete for the Golden Bowl and Silver Ladle Awards and a chance for bragging rights for 2019. 

 

A $5 donation will get you a cup of soup from one of our local participating restaurants. For a donation of $10 or more to the event, you will not only enjoy hot soup, but will take home an original work of art by one of our many talented artists. All proceeds from the event go to the Autauga Interfaith Care Center food bank. 

The event will be held from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the Prattville Creative Arts Center. Admission to the event is free, but we ask that you donate a non-perishable food item for the AICC food bank. 

 

While you are tasting soups, you can enjoy an exhibit of artwork by local artists, representing a variety of artistic styles. There are original paintings, clay pieces, photography and more that will be on display, some are available for sale. 

 

The Gallery is located at the Prattville Creative Arts Center at 342 Chestnut Street in historic Downtown Prattville and is a short walk from a variety of shops and the beautiful Autauga Creek Walk and gardens.

 

For more information about the Soup Cook-Off and how you can participate, contact the Special Events Office at 334/595-0854 or visit the website at artguild.prattvilleal.gov.
