BECKLEY - Beckley Renaissance hosted their 4th annual springtime food event in Beckley to benefit Theatre West Virginia Act II and help increase donations at a local food pantry.
Jill Moorefield, event organizer for the Beckley Renaissance, said this group understands how important art is to the community. The 'Souper Saturday' event is much like chili night, but it's held in the spring and soup is sampled instead of chili. Artists at the event painted fire hydrants for on-lookers, and the windows of bars, restaurants and store-fronts sport local masterpieces.
Ticket holders were allowed to sample 5 soups made by a variety of vendors.
