As posted on, October 18, 2012.

GILFORD — Sunday School children of Gilford United Church are inviting members of the community to come out and support a homemade soup contest in support of Sleeping Children Around the World, a not-for-profit group that provides bed kits for children in the Third World.

The event will be held on Sunday, Oct. 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the church, located at the corner of Gilford Road and the 20th Sideroad.

In the past 10 years, the Gilford kids have raised enough money for 100 kits, each worth $35. This year’s goal is 50 kits. Celebrity cooks invited to participate include Mayor Barb Baguley, MP Peter Van Loan, Gilford United minister Glen Eagle and The Club at Bond Head chef.

The cost to sample all of the soups is $5. Included in the price are a beverage, rolls and dessert.
