Toledo SOUP- 3rd Course Event Details

What: Toledo SOUP- 3rd Course Event!

When: Sunday, September 8th

Time: 5-9 p.m.

Details: Toledo SOUP is back for its third course of crowd-funded community projects. Please join us on Sunday, September 8th, from 5-9 p.m. at Toledo School for the Arts, located at 333 14th Street #4 in Uptown Toledo.

You’ll hear from five new presenters, including Genevieve Abalos (The Art of Hope), Ben Cohen (The Macelwane Park Basketball Court Project), Aimee Reid (Children’s Theatre Workshop), Rachel Richardson (Art Corner Toledo) and Jamie Sampson (ADJ-ective New Music). Visit the Toledo SOUP Facebook page to learn more about these presenters. The public will decide which proposal will benefit from SOUP’s crowd-funding assistance.

So how does SOUP work? First you come to the event and donate $5 at the door ($1 for children ages 12 and under). Then eat a simple meal of soup, salad and bread while you listen to ideas for new community projects. Finally, vote for your favorite project. The top vote-getter will be awarded all the funds collected at the door.

If you plan to attend the 3rd course of Toledo SOUP, please RSVP for the event on Facebook so we can get a general headcount.

The Scoop on the 3rd Soup

We’re pleased to announce that the third rendition of Toledo SOUP will take place Sunday, September 8th at Toledo School for the Arts from 5-9 p.m. Toledo SOUP is now accepting submissions from anyone interested in presenting their community project or business idea at the September event.

Toledo SOUP is a crowd-funding opportunity for community members to contribute or enact small-dollar projects to positively impact the Toledo area community. Past Toledo SOUP events have benefited Art Around Town—creative and educational art activities for area youth; and Glass City Pedicabs—Toledo’s first 100% green transportation company. If your community-minded idea could benefit from a $500-$1000 micro grant, we encourage you to submit a proposal.

Submissions are open from now until 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31st. That means you have a full two weeks to develop your ideas. Should you have additional questions about the submission process, email us at or visit us on Facebook.
