Ready to help non-profit organizations and enjoy delicious soup?
After a three-year hiatus, Souper Bowl returns to the Corpus Christi Center for the Arts to help raise funds for Coastal Bend, a nonprofit and food bank, on Thursday, February 16th. Doors open at 17:30.
Tickets are available from $40 to $10,000 and can be purchased at artcentercc.org/souperbowl2023 or at the door.
Not to be confused with soccer balls and helmets, the Souper Bowl is an event where attendees can choose a locally made ceramic bowl to take home rather than eat from it, then feast on soup from several local restaurants.
The bowls were made by the Barry Brown Clay Studio at the art center. There will be hundreds of bowls to choose from, with additional bowls available for purchase at an additional cost.
Over 20 different types of soup will be featured at participating restaurants including Black Marlin Bar & Grill at Palmilla Beach, Buen Provecho, Farmacy Grill, Hester’s Cafe & Coffee Bar, Katz 21, Railroad Seafood Co. Downtown, Taylor Center Deli and more.
General admission tickets are $40 and include one handmade bowl, unlimited soup, and free parking. VIP tickets are $75 and include everything the general admission ticket gives you and early access at 5pm.
Children under 12 do not need a ticket. They will not receive a handmade bowl, but will be able to enjoy the soup and tasting.
Sponsorship packages are available, ranging from $500 to $10,000. Packages include reserved tables, tickets, advertising in the program and private lessons.
A cash bar, pop-up pottery shop, and current exhibits will be available.
