Art Cen­ter ready for 6th Soup for Good fundraiser

Event to sup­port lo­cal artists and hunger re­lief

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - NEWS - By Joe Amarante

GUIL­FORD — It’s a fundraiser, it’s a soup din­ner on a cold night, and it sup­ports the arts and hunger re­lief in a lo­cal com­mu­nity. Pa­trons will eat up this event with a spoon, as they have five times be­fore in Guil­ford, not to men­tion other arts-lov­ing places in the state.

The sixth an­nual Soup for Good sup­per sup­ports Guil­ford Art Cen­ter and the Com­mu­nity Din­ing Room Sun­day from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the 411 Church St. venue.

The din­ner will take place in the art cen­ter’s school, where guests can se­lect from a va­ri­ety of hearty soups, home­made breads, desserts and a glass of wine or sparkling wa­ter. And, of course, the cool part is that each guest chooses their own one-ofa-kind soup bowl, crafted by GAC pot­ters. Bowls will be washed for guests to take home “for good,” says a GAC re­lease.

The cen­ter’s an­nual hol­i­day shop, with other fine craft work made by Amer­i­can artists, will be open af­ter the din­ner as part of the an­nual shop­ping event called “Artistry: Amer­i­can Craft for the Hol­i­days.”

Tick­ets are $30 in ad­vance, $35 at door. For in­for­ma­tion, call 203-453-5947 or visit Guil­for­dart­cen­ter.org.
