La Crosse SOUP is a collaborative celebration, a public dinner, and a platform for connection. It is a quarterly micro-granting event for people of all ages and backgrounds with the goal of bringing our community together to support creative projects designed to make La Crosse an even better place. The mission is to promote community-based development through crowdfunding, creativity, collaboration, trust, and fun.

The next La Crosse SOUP event will be held on Thursday, January 25, at the Cleary & Friends Alumni Center on the UW-La Crosse campus located at 615 East Avenue North in La Crosse. Doors open (food and drinks served) at 5:00 p.m. The program and pitches begin at 6:00 p.m. The winner will be announced at 7:00 p.m. We’ll have details about special parking instructions in the near future.
Information about this event’s four pitches will also be coming soon.

For a suggested donation of just $5, attendees receive soup from local vendors, bread, and a vote. Four groups will pitch their idea for four minutes each on how they plan to make a positive impact and improve our community. The audience can ask up to four questions of each presenter. Once all ideas are shared, everyone votes for their favorite. As the night ends, all the votes are counted and the winner goes home with the money raised to carry out their project.

An extra special thank you to our generous sponsors Atproperties La Crosse, Altra Federal Credit Union, and Rural Mutual Insurance: Kevin Carlson.
