Poor Billy’s wins Ewing Cabinet Company’s Souper Bowl Throwdown
There was a new type of “souper” bowl in town Jan. 31 at Ewing Cabinet Company in Blacksburg.
More than 100 guests gathered in support of the event, which benefitted United Way of Montgomery, Radford and Floyd. The patrons were able to taste soups, vote on their favorite and place bids at the silent auction.
Poor Billy’s was the big soup winner at the end of the night, with Sal’s Restaurant coming in at a close second and 622 North with an even closer third! Participating restaurants were asked to provide an appetizer or make a donation. Other delicious appetizers were provided by Hethwood Market and Lil’ Bit Corny. Celebrity guest judges were Catherine Sutton from the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce, Mary Hardbarger of The Burgs and Kerri Taylor of Mix 100.7 FM, who also provided DJ services.
Vendors who donated items for the silent auction included: 8 Petals, Polished, Sal’s, State Electric, Blacksburg Country Club, A Cleaner World, Designs by Duncan, The Chocolate Spike, Valley Paint, G&H Appliance, On A Whim, and The Orange Bandana. Additional thanks are owed to New River Engraving for donating the contest trophies and Amodeo Photography for providing the photo booth.
“We were thrilled with the turnout and success of our first ever Souper Bowl Throwdown,” said Debbie Ewing, owner of Ewing Cabinet Company. ”Being a locally owned business we are even more excited that the money raised from this event will benefit our area community. We would like to again express our sincere gratitude for those who came out, and we look forward to next year.”
