Soup's On! And it's all for the kids

-A A +A

Volunteer Susie Dutton fills a bowl of Tuscany chicken soup for Child Advocacy Center of the Ninth Judicial District’s inaugural Roane County “Soup’s On” event Thursday in Kingston First Baptist Church.

Homemade Tuscany chicken, Hunter’s chili and sausage potato soups were offered with bread and cookies.

The event raised $2,806 to help provide services to severely abused children at the CAC.

Board members, volunteers, county members and the faith-based community all donated time, money and resources for the event.

CAC is hosting another fundraiser in April for Child Abuse Awareness month.

The Celebrate with Kids First Dinner and Auction will be on April 18 in Rothchilds Conference Center in Knoxville.
