Come join in the food and fun! Sunday, October 27, is the date for the 5th annual Community Pantry Stone Soup Supper and silent auction fundraiser. It will be held at the Southslope Community Room from 5:00 -7:00 pm. Tickets, which will be sold at the door, are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children. Sponsors for the event are Southslope Communications, Hills Bank & Trust, UI Community Credit Union, and J.M. Swank Co. Soups will be provided by a variety of individuals and restaurants, including the Bluebird Diner and Red’s Alehouse. A few of the silent auction items are restaurant certificates, a quilt from the Iowa City Quilters Guild, golf clubs, massages, pedicures, and a variety of baskets.
Money raised from the Stone Supper and the silent auction will go into the Pantry’s general operating fund. This year the Pantry has been averaging 600 visits per month, and in August there were 678 visits.
