The next Windsor SOUP will be held on Wednesday July 9th, 2014 at 7pm at the Walkerville Brewery.

The selected four projects that will be pitching for the next Windsor SOUP include ‘Logoed Bus Service’ that can be used to attend public events including festivals and farmer’s market with the aim of collecting non-perishable food items, hygiene products and cash donations; an ‘Executive/Leadership Coaching’ to provide effective leadership skills to emerging leaders to support the people in need and make the community a better place; an ‘iPhone app’ that connects residents and visitors to community points of interest: walking paths, bike trails, restaurants, wineries, parks, outdoor art (sculpture gardens), parking lots, bus routes or stops; and ‘Athlete Mentorship Program’ to bring professional athletes into act as a mentor for young athletes.

The event follows a 4:4:4 format; 4 presenters, each speaking for 4 minutes, and each presenter answers 4 questions from attendees. With a donation of five dollars at the door, attendants will receive soup and salad donated by La Contessa and get a chance to vote on a creative project which they feel has the most remarkable potential to make a positive impact on the community. Meghan Chamberlain, local community artist and recent graduate of the University of Windsor’s Music program will be performing at the event.

The last Windsor SOUP held in may brought approximately 80 community members together. At the end of the event, Amy Pinsonneault received the majority of support from voters and won the micro-grant collected through the dinner. The collected donation was matched by P. & L. Odette Charitable Foundation, giving Amy a total of $780 for her project.

The mission of Windsor SOUP is to provide support for creative projects and enhance social activities in Windsor-Essex community. “It was great to see so many passionate people come together to contribute to the betterment of our community,” said Nick Jones, Enactus team member working on Windsor SOUP.

The upcoming Windsor SOUP will be a regular event, those interested in bringing their workplace to the event can contact Peter Corio at c[email protected] or call 519-996-9903. Windsor SOUP application form can be download by visiting http://pathwaytopotential.ca/windsor-soup
