Souper Bowl IX attracted some 500 ticket holders to the Musikfest Cafe Jan. 27 to sample 29 soups from 19 local restaurants during a three-hour culinary event. Anita Zawada of Kempton samples soup from Emeril’s Fish House at the Bethlehem Sands Casino. “It’s so good,” said the first-timer, who was tasting Lump Crab and Sweet Corn Chowder.
Musikfest volunteer Jayne Snyder of Schnecksville prepares a tray of sample soup cups to be distributed to the crowd. “I volunteer every year for the Souper Bowl,” Snyder said. The annual ArtsQuest fundraiser netted more than $20,000 for its Arts Education Fund.
