22nd Annual Souper Bowl

Domestic Violence Intervention Program 22nd Annual Souper Bowl Fundraiser to support victim/survivors of intimate partner violence
DVIP invites the community to join them in raising funds for those most vulnerable. Many of the victim/survivors we serve flee with nothing more than the clothes on their back. For some, like Cindra, the situation is now or never. Cindra and her son, Kyle, fled in the middle of dinner after her husband had thrown a knife at her, narrowly missing her right shoulder. She was able to grab Kyle and flee leaving everything behind but her 7-year-old son. While they made it safely to shelter they were in need of everything from clothing to hygiene products and the support to create a safety plan for when her husband came looking for them. DVIP advocates have assisted nearly 1800 individuals in the past year by providing them with free and confidential safety planning, medical and legal advocacy, support groups, housing assistance, 24-hour crisis hotline, and other vital resources.
Ending intimate partner violence and supporting victim/survivors like Cindra and Kyle takes all of us. Which is why the theme for the 22nd annual Souper Bowl is “Stone Soup”. A French folktale of a community coming together with what they have to support those in need. With over 75 participating restaurants, 25 retail and artist bowl providers, and hundreds of amazing community members this is a night to be part of.
