The Rotary Club hosted an event at Meson Sabika announcing the total funds raised at their 7th Annual Soups On event, awarding their chosen charities with a check.
“We are giving away $32,333 to four different charities. One is the Naperville Rotary Charities, and the other ones are Hesed House, Loaves and Fishes and DuPage Pads,” said John Gallager, President of Naperville Rotary Club. “Each year we give over $100,000 and I think this year we gave a little over $120,000 to the charities so we’re really excited about that.”
The one-day event that was held in October at Naperville Central High School featured about 30 restaurants handing out samples and collecting donations for the Rotary Club.
One hundred percent of the proceeds went to charities in order to feed, clothe and give shelter to the less fortunate.
This event is the number one fundraiser locally for the Rotary Club of Naperville.
