Youth Villages hosted their 30th Annual Soup Sunday at the FedEx Forum on Sunday.
This year’s special guest was Memphis Tigers men’s basketball head coach Penny Hardaway, who welcomed attendees and rang the traditional kite-shaped dinner bells to get the event started.
Soup Sunday gives Mid-Southerners a chance to sample delicious treats from 50 of the best area restaurants and caterers.
More than 2,000 people came out to help raise money for the Youth Villages’ Chris Crye mentoring program.
“If you have one person in your life sometimes that believes in you and sees things in you that you don’t see in yourself and is willing to spend time with you it can make a tremendous difference in your life,” said Richard Shaw, Youth Villages Chief Development Officer.
Big Bluff City food staples like Huey’s, Half Shell, and Mosa Asian Bistro were just a few of the places people could choose soup options.
