On July 26 we hosted our first Queen City Soup micro-grant dinner at The 7th Street Public Market. What a fun evening!
Guests enjoyed chatting with our “Artist Ambassadors” before dinner. This was a great chance for our Ambassadors to display their art and field questions from our guests. A special thanks to our Ambassadors : Sharon Dowell, Rosa Diaz, Cher Cosper, Osama Wazan, Claudia Soria, Tina Alberni, and Mark Doepker
During the meal, April Denée, Phil Thomas, Carmella Jarvi, Jose Vazquez and Sydney Duarte presented their grant proposals. The full details of the proposals are available at this link. Our dinner guests voted Jose Vazquez the winner of the $780 Queen City Soup Micro-grant for his “Five Dollars for My Story”: Homeless in the Homeland project.
We would like to thank our sponsors who made this possible: The 7th Street Market, Pure Pizza and Las Delicias Bakery for their generous support.
The next Queen City Soup will be September 21 at the Epicenter Pavilion.
