The members of the Board of Directors of NAMI-CV would like to thank all those who helped make our second annual Battling Stigma Together – Soup Cook-Off such a success.
The Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration Planning Committee were especially helpful in helping to plan for the event and for giving us the opportunity to piggy back on their marvelous weekend. There were 15 participating restaurants: Bazzano’s Pizza, Big Earl’s Restaurant, Butcher Block, Conroy’s Organics, Cumberland Bay Market, Ground Round, Irises, Jingles Country Cooking, Mangia’s, Olive Ridleys, Peabody’s, Pizza Bono Ristorante, Price Chopper and The Pepper. All the soups were delicious and all were sold out in less than three hours! Bazzano’s Pizza won the “Most Comforting” soup with their “Corn Chowder” and The Pepper the “Most Unique” for “Chorizo Corn Chowder”. Please stop by the restaurants and see the customized aprons they won for their efforts.
Buck’s Paper donated the paper products for the event and Hannaford’s gave us plenty of delicious breads to serve with the soups. These donations enabled us to realize maximum profit from the fundraiser by keeping our costs to a minimum.
This has become a popular annual event and we look forward to having a great crowd during the 2012 Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration Weekend to taste soups from many of our wonderful local restaurants and vote for their favorites in the two categories.
