Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families to host ‘Soup Sunday’ Feb. 23

It’s apparently a big week for soup around here.

We posted about the UA ceramics students’ Soup and Bowl sale earlier today, and there’s another soup related event coming up this weekend in Springdale.

Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families will host their annual Soup Sunday Fundraiser on Feb. 23 at the Northwest Arkansas Convention Center.

The event will include soup, breads and desserts from over 25 area restaurants, a silent auction, live music, and activities for children.

Tikets are $25 at the door for adults ($20 in advance), and $5 for children ages 5-12. All of the proceeds form the event benefit Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families. The event will begin at 4 p.m. and run until 7 p.m.

Founded in 1977 by Hillary Rodham (Clinton), AACF is a non-profit advocacy organization which encourages public policy in Arkansas that will benefit children and their families. Its mission statement is “to protect and promote through research, education and advocacy the rights and well-being of Arkansas children and their families, to assure that they have the opportunity to lead healthy and productive lives.”
