Our very own Desiree received a shout out in a recent edition of the  Marco Eagle for her involvement in the Marco Island’s annual “Souper Bowl.”

Held on the Saturday before Super Bowl Sunday, the concept behind the Souper Bowl was in fact created by Desiree in the early 2010s as a way to honor her mother, a ceramics teacher, who ironically passed away eight years ago, one day before the Super Bowl.

This is the fifth outing for the Souper Bowl, begun in 2013 and traditionally held on the Saturday before that other event, the similarly named football game. The (Saturday) Souper Bowl is sponsored by the Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce, and is a fundraiser for the Leadership Marco scholarship fund. Last year, between the Souper Bowl and the Wet Paint Live event, scholarship funds totaling $20,000 were awarded to local high school seniors

Held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mackle Park “airnasium,” for a $15 contribution, the Souper Bowl gives you a hand-decorated bowl, which you can then use to visit the restaurant’s booths to try their soups.
