The #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.
This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:
Take part in HARS Soup-a-Thon Fundraiser. HIV/AIDS Regional Services (aka HARS) is a local agency whose mandate is to provide comprehensive HIV / AIDS education and support programs as well as limited Hepatitis C services to clients in Kingston and the surrounding region. While HARS may be 25 years old, they’re having their very first Soup-a-Thon Fundraiser this Saturday (from 1pm to 4pm) at their home at 844A Princess Street. For $5, attendees can taste and vote for their favourite soups served up by the likes of Windmills, The Brass, Sir John’s Pub, Martha’s Table, The Sleepless Goat, Star Diner as well as the St. Lawrence Culinary Program. All funds raised via the Soup-a-Thon go towards client services at HARS.
Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.
