A SOUPer Bowl WIN for the Light House Shelter

Over 200 people turned out Sunday afternoon for the 14th Annual SOUPer Bowl Lunch at Heritage Baptist Church, raising $4300 in two hours for the Light House Homeless Prevention and Support Center in Annapolis. This total surpassed the $3000 goal and set a record for most money raised in the event’s history.

    Representatives from the Light House BEST Culinary Job Training Program along with volunteers from the church and Junior League of Annapolis ladled soups prepared by Chef Zachary Pope. Guests enjoyed a selection of chili, chicken noodle or baked potato soups along with salad, bread and dessert. There was no admission fee, but donations were requested to help the Light House. 

Heritage Baptist Church is an affiliate congregational partner of the shelter, offering support and resources throughout the year.

 I would like to thank the nurses at Charlotte Hall Veterans Home, Calvert Medical Health Center, and the Burnett Calvert Hospice House for the wonderful care they gave my husband, John Cosgrove, during the last weeks of his life. 

I would want to thank my many friends who prayed for the both of us and for our family during this difficult time. We have received so many sympathy cards with an outpouring of love and support that I cannot find the words to say Thank You.  

You will all be in my heart always,

—Connie Cosgrove and the entire Cosgrove family
