When the State Street Jazz Band fired up on Saturday, March 26 at White Park in Concord, there were already 50 guests in line to pick up their soup at the Concord Coalition to End Homelessness’ signature fundraising event, SouperFest. In all, 250 households purchased 1000 soups provided by Concord’s finest eateries.
The Jazz music was the perfect background as the volunteers, including Senator Becky Whitley, Merrimack County Commissioner Tara Reardon, Sheriff David Croft, Mayor Jim Bouley, City Councilor Stacey Brown, City Councilor Karen McNamara and MCSB President Linda Lorden, hustled to process guest orders. The event raised over $50,000 through the generosity of seventy local SouperFest business sponsors.
