Because You Asked …

FlorineD wondered yesterday how much money was raised and how many attended the annual all-you-can eat soup day for the homeless, sponsored by St. Vinny's. Here's the answer that organizer Chris Copstead sent Huckleberries: "Final numbers aren't in yet. Over $9,000. Attendance, somewhere around 750. The soups were GREAT!!! The Celebrity Servers were FANTASTIC!!! Those that came were FABULOUS!!! Thanks to the people in our wonderful community. They really care for those less fortunate." The all-cap words and punctuation point triplicates are Chris'. But he earns leeway from Huckleberries Online for bringing home another successful fundraiser.

Question: Did you attend St. Vinny's fundraiser Thursday?
