Souper Bowl of Soups Cook-Off – April 19, 2023

A warm way to support the D54 Foundation and tackle hunger is to join us at the Schaumburg A.M. Rotary Club’s Souper Bowl of Soups Cook-Off on Wednesday, April 19, at Schaumburg’s Wintrust Field. Attendees will sample soups from area restaurants and vote for their favorite. The champion will be announced at the end of the event.
