News! - Nice press release from Pacific Cup
What is Free Bowl of Soup (.org)?!
Over a decade ago the sailboat racing team “Free Bowl of Soup” was born in Portland, Oregon. The desire to redeem our karma after telling a joke about the name being serious (it isn’t) has turned into fun and positive opportunity for our friends to help raise over $30,000 for Oregon Food Bank! Good times, and amazing generosity. As ‘the Soup’ has grown from a J/24 (24’) to a J/105 (35’), so have the challenges we’ve taken on, culminating in the Pacific Cup race from San Francisco to Hawaii in July 2014. As we began our preparations, we decided it was time to see if we could grow Free Bowl of Soup’s charitable impact even more. We hope you’ll join in our adventure. Please join the fun here by donating, and come along for the ride at http://freebowlofsoup.com and at http://pacificcup.org! We'll wrap it all up on the Columbia River and on the shores at http://ColumbiaCrossings.com in Portland, OR on August 16th! Indicate your boat name (other than the Soup) and be in the running to win Oregon Food Bank Free Bowl of Soup "Regatta" (solely based on donations).
To turn a great line in a classic move, that became a funny boat name, into an opportunity to provide Free Bowls of Soup to those in need with our friend's help
Who You’ll be Helping
All proceeds will go to help the Oregon Food Bank, or to a local food charity of your choice if desired. Please visit their website to see what a great organization and cause to support.
