HOW ABOUT A SOUPER BOWL?

The Super Bowl is February 5th.  It doesn’t matter if you love or hate football.  Either way, why not tie-in to this epic sports event, get into the “red zone” and raise some dollars for your team?!? 

Holding a soup cook-off contest can be fun and easy.  Here is a quick play by play guide to scoring big with your SOUPER BOWL:

  • Join forces with a local restaurant that would be willing to host the contest and pre-promote
  • Charge an entry fee per soup recipe
  • Find some local “personalities” for judges – the mayor, a local DJ or news anchor
  • The day of the event, registered contestants come with their soup and recipes
  • The judges taste the entries and award a grand prize winner and runners up
  • Prizes can be gift certificates to the host restaurant or a kitchen appliance

Here are some “twists” on the event.  Use these ideas to help create your own to tie-in with your animal, cancer or earth-friendly group:

Animal Shelters – have a rule that all entries must have the word DOG or CAT in the title – for example:  Cajun Cat Gumbo or Canine Chili

Cancer Organizations – after the judging all entries are delivered or given to cancer patients at a local hospital

Earth-Friendly Groups – all entries must be made from organic and all-natural ingredients
