A variety of local pottery bowls will be given out at Soup's On, a fundraiser by Randolph Christian Men.

Soup’s On: Fill your bowl and help a good cause

ASHEBORO — If you want to help local charities while enjoying delicious soup, Soup’s On is for you.


The annual event held by Randolph Christian Men is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, at the First Baptist Church Christian Life Center, 133 N. Church St., Asheboro. Meals will be served from 4-7 p.m.


Following tradition, attendees will be able to pick from locally made and donated pottery bowls. 


There will be six varieties of soup: Chicken noodle, chicken and rice, potato, vegetable beef, broccoli and cheese, and taco. The soups are provided by several restaurants and churches. 


In addition to soup, the meal will include a salad, dessert and drink.


Along with food, Soup’s On organizers will have a silent auction of donated items. The Randolph Christian Men are continuing to accept items. 


In addition, all meal ticket holders will have a chance to win a large-screen 4K Ultra HD TV. The drawing will be held at 7 p.m., but you don’t have to be present to win.


Tickets for the meal, silent auction and chance to win a TV are $25. The money collected helps those in need. Selected ministries this year are Young Lives and Child Evangelism Fellowship. The auction is important for the fund-raising event.


Soup’s On averages about 275 attendees and nets between $9,000-$10,000 per year. Approximately 98 percent of ticket prices will go to Young LIves, Child Evangelism Fellowship and Randolph Christian Men.


It’s the main fund-raiser for Randolph Christian Men, composed of members from dozens of local churches. 


The ministry also raises money for a number of charities, including Shelter of Hope, Christians United Outreach Center (CUOC), the Boys and Girls Club, the Village of Barnabus and Ignite Randolph, among others. 


Randolph Christian Men also holds an annual food drive for CUOC, hosts a dinner for local pastors and their wives, and holds a Back-to-School Prayer Night each year prior to the beginning of school. They also hold a marriage retreat every year at Camp Caraway.


Randolph Christian Men was organized 15 years ago and started doing Soup’s On in 2016. They appreciate help from the community and area businesses.


Tickets to Soup’s On can be purchased from any member of Randolph Christian Men. Otherwise, there will be tickets at the door.
