Kids’ Gorge Soup is Tuesday

The presenters have been chosen for Tuesday’s Gorge Soup for Kids.

With Gorge Soup, diners enjoy dinner together, hear grant hopefuls describe their project or business and then vote on which request or requests they would like to fund.

The dinner proceeds are then disbursed to the winner or winners.

The community is invited to have soup May 14 at 6 p.m. at Springhouse Cellars to hear these students present.

Tickets are $35 and available at: http://

The presenters are:

  • Courtney Ghiz-Peters, Horse Stables for 4-H Members
  • Fiona Wylde, Standup Paddle Board Events
  • Nia Burtchaell-Norman, The Gift of Gardening
  • Keeley Brownback, Sand Castles Candles
  • Phineas C. Newcomb, Y2Pro (a Scootering Advocacy Group)
  • Madison Mooney and Nina Magana, Staying Authentic (Organic Food)

Sponsorships of $100 are also still available; email if you are interested.

At last year’s Gorge Soup, winner Keenan Collins of New Leaf Gallery accepted half of his grant and asked that the rest be given to the other presenters. New Leaf, on Seventh Street near Oak, holds monthly classes and other events for teens in the community.

Gorge Soup began in 2011 and has thus far produced three events for adult entrepreneurs and one for Gorge area students in grades K-12.

Last year’s season resulted in a total of five new ventures receiving a total of more than $7,100 in support.

Organizers say that at least three new Soup events have begun in Portland and Seattle, inspired by Gorge Soup.
