Ward Melville High School students Rebecca Holt and Lucia Buscemi are spearheading a fundraiser to raise $30,000 to build a school in Malawi this summer in conjunction with the nonprofit buildOn, and they are hoping the Three Village Community will join them in their efforts.
On March 18, they will host a soup cookoff at The Bates House in Setauket. Attendees can enter their best soup for a chance to win a first place prize of $150. Entry fee for the contest is $30. Participants will enjoy homemade soups and be able to vote for their favorite. The event will also include basket raffles and live music.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children under 12. Tickets can also be purchased at the door but will be $5 more than tickets bought in advance. The On Soup Cookoff will take place from noon to 3 p.m. on March 18. To buy tickets or enter a soup, email the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Bates House is located at 1 Bates Road, Setauket.
