Wooters in or near Reading PA:

Are you looking for a great night out? How about an evening out that combines a light meal, great conversation and a beautiful “souvenir” all while benefiting a great cause? Join us for the 5th Anniversary Opportunity House Souper Bowl Event! This fun night out combines the talents of professional artists, Berks County’s finest restaurants, and local businesses to focus on easing hunger and homelessness in our community.

What is the Opportunity House Souper Bowl? Each attendee chooses a “soup bowl” hand-crafted by a diverse collection of artists, students and other talented contributors. Part of the fun of this event is the challenge of choosing a favorite from the great selection of bowls. The event features dozens of delicious soups to sample, all donated by fine area restaurants. There is even a dessert floor featuring sweets from around Berks County.

When is the Opportunity House Souper Bowl? Monday, May 7, 2007 from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm in the ballrooms at the Sovereign Performing Arts Center; 136 N. Sixth Street, Reading.

What is the Cost? Tickets are $20.00 in advance and $25.00 at the door.

Who does this benefit? Opportunity House, a non-profit organization that serves Berks County, and we would be honored to partner with your company to serve the needs of members of our community. A multi-service organization, Opportunity House offers services ranging from meals and shelter, to support for sexually-abused children and their families. Our agency serves three meals daily to 60 – 100 people per meal, depending on the time of year.

While our original mission (offering shelter and food to those in need) still holds true, we realize that this only treats the symptoms of homelessness. Additional services have been implemented to help our clients determine the cause(s) of their situation and create individual goals that will encourage successful independent living.

We hope to see you for a great activity for a great cause!



Sorry that is so long, but it is an awesome event & I've been working very hard on it, so come join us if you're in the area!

Hi fellow wooters!

Today, 1 in 150 is diagnosed with autism.

I made a video about autism for the band Five for Fighting's "What Kind of World do You Want?" contest. Each time someone views my video and then clicks the ad at the end, Five for Fighting will donate $.49 to Autism Speaks to fund autism research. Please donate to this worthy cause by viewing my video:

The URL is http://www.whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com/videos/view/id/252777

(I know this sounds like one of those "If you forward this e-mail then Bill Gates and AOL will send you half their fortunes" e-mails, but this is for real. The "What Kind of World Do You Want?" website has details on how the donations are made.)

Thanks for viewing my video!

I thought that I wanted a career, but it turned out I just wanted paychecks.

Thank you for posting the video.
I'll let all of the regulars know to come over here and watch it and click on the ad. You have a beautiful family. Whenever I pray for ARGH's nephew I will pray for your son. Hopefully in their lifetime we can find a cure for both.

Nope, we don't need any help here, it works just fine the way it is!

I don't know if any wooters attended last night's Opportunity House Souper Bowl, but if you did I can't thank you enough. We had the largest number of attendees we have ever had and were blown away by the response. (OK, I'll even admit that we were caught off guard by the rush of people, but it is for a great cause so it's worth it!)

So if you attended, again. Thank You Thank You Thank You! Final numbers aren't in, but I think this was the most successful Souper Bowl ever!

Thanks!

Thanks for the spirit--at least I didn't worry about running out of soup & bowls for spirits!
We had between 100-150 more people than we have in past years (A HUGE leap for this little fundraiser).

As for the Philadelphia Shriner's Hospital post, Donate! http://shfc.convio.net/donatenow
I have done some work with the Reading Shriners & they are a great group of guys & work hard for children, bringing kids and their families to Philadelphia on their own time/dime.
