Mercy Service League scores a big win for Mercy Medical Center

Mercy Medical Center’s Mercy Service League scored a big win for the hospital at its second annual Souper Bowl fundraising event held January 25 at Meyer’s Lake Ballroom in Canton. The Souper Bowl attracted nearly 200 guests and raised more than $13,000 in total event proceeds for the hospital.

“The Souper Bowl was the result of some excellent teamwork by Mercy Service League. All of our guests had time to enjoy a variety of delicious soups and to get to know a few new restaurants,” said Wendy Lichtenwalter, Souper Bowl event chair. “We are grateful for the support of these local businesses and all of those who came out to support our financial pledge to the services that Mercy Medical Center provides in our community.”

Attendees enjoyed soup samplings from a variety of local establishments, plus desserts prepared by the culinary art students at Canton South High School and Jackson High School. Two of the local establishments took home top honors for their soup. Fishers Catering Company earned the judge’s award with its San Marzano Tomato Bisque and Brookside Country Club took home the people’s choice award for its Butternut Squash Soup with Duck Confit, Pecan Syrup and Brioche Croutons.

“We scored a Touchdown and we can't wait to do it again next year,” said Lichtenwalter.

All proceeds from the Souper Bowl benefit Mercy Medical Center, which is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System.
