Support Local Business! Soup Nite October 16th!

SOUP NIGHT logoCome out and support your community for out second every Soup Nite! On October 16th at 6:30 pm, join us at Urban Eats for an evening of delectable soups and delicious business ideas. The Mount Rainier Business Association created the Innovation Fund to directly support small local businesses in Mount Rainier who have a dream to realize but lack the funds to complete.

The previous Soup Nite saw submissions from Circle Deli, Urban Eats, and Hands On Barber. Hands on Barber took home the prize for their proposal to fence in an unsightly and dangerous lot next to their front door. Who will take home the prize this time? You decide! $5 gets you a vote and delicious choice of soup. ONLY ONE VOTE PER PERSON.

Open to all, in exchange for $5 get a bowl of soup and a vote for a local Mount Rainier Business.

Each business will make a presentation and answer questions from the audience. Audience members then vote for their favorite proposal. At the end of the evening, Mount Rainier Business Association will award $3,000, split among groups based on your votes.

Remember, the more soup served, the more invested in local business.
