Mercy Medical Center Souper Bowl fundraiser draws record crowd

Mercy Medical Center’s Mercy Service League held its annual soup-tasting fundraiser, The Souper Bowl, January 29 at Meyer’s Lake Ballroom in Canton, Ohio. With a record-setting 220 participants, the event raised more than $13,000 to benefit the Mercy Facility Transformation Project.

Metz Food Services took home the Best Soup Award for its Lobster Bisque, and the Jackson Local Schools high school culinary department won the best dessert trophy. The Souper Bowl featured soups from a variety of local restaurants and catering companies, and desserts were prepared by area culinary students. All proceeds will benefit the Mercy Facility Transformation Project.

“We opened a second room this year at the Meyers Lake Ballroom so that we had more room for soups and diners,” said Elaine Campbell, director of Mercy Development Foundation. “Our presale tickets have already gone over the attendance from last year. Plus, we added a cornhole game and more tables.”
