Earlier last week, 106 wonderful Soupers showed their support for six amazing local initiatives at
Arts Court Theatre for Soup Ottawa’s 11th event! MLT DWN spoiled us with their Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Bisque soup and freshly pressed grilled cheese (we’re drooling just thinking about it).
A HUGE thank you goes out to Arts Court and MLT DWN (located at the Rideau Centre) for partnering with us for this event!
The winner, as voted by you, was “ManUp” who took home a whopping $1,060! ManUp is a student-led group looking to change the way we treat women and they’ll be using their funding towards bringing guest speakers such as Mr. Glen Canning (father of the late Rehtaeh Parsons, Victim of Gender Violence) and Julie Barbosa (survivor of years of battery at the hands of her father. Julie and her brother broke the cycle of violence following the murder of their mother at the hands of their father) to their ManUp Inspire Conference in May 2016. Follow their progress on twitter @ManUpLDHSS and check out their website for more information: www.setanewstandard.ca.
We want to thank all of our presenters who came out and got up on stage to pitch their wonderful projects.
