Gumbo, Gazpacho and Vichyssoise, Oh My!

It was a both a party and a fundraiser.

It was silent auction as well as an opportunity to sample various types of soup. (gazpacho, vichyssoise, green chile stew, Italian wedding soup, gumbo).

It was a partnership between the Rio Grande Food Project and the food pantry at St. John XXIII Catholic Community.

In the end, this event held on Saturday, May 19 at the home of Terry and Jeannette Dunbar, raised just over $6,000 from a silent auction and donations. In addition, people who attended the event brought non-perishable food items, which yielded 212 pounds of food. All in all, a successful evening! Here are some photos.
