Halloween Soup-A-Thon raises money for Children’s Miracle Network
Annual event from LHI, Kaplan, SAP hopes to raise more than $18,000
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Some costumed employees in La Crosse enjoyed a nice hot bowl of soup on the cold day.
LHI, Kaplan, and SAP put on their annual Soup-A-Thon Friday, a fundraiser for the Children’s Miracle Network. Employees paid to sample ghoulishly named soups from 18 local restaurants. They also judged them on a number of categories.
This year they’re hoping to raise over $18,000, which would help them pass a fundraising milestone.
“Over the 12 years we’ve been able to raise over $90,000, so this year we’re hoping to surpass that and that $100,000 mark,” said LHI Events Coordinator Thomas Foaster.
A check is usually presented to the Children’s Miracle Network in December.
