“Soup! There It Is” cook off to benefit WTJU

Join WTJU for our first-ever soup cook-off fundraiser!

Sunday, February 26 at 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM
Fry’s Spring Beach Club
2512 Jefferson Park Ave in Charlottesville


It’s kinda like the chili cook-offs you know about, but with a twist. Your ticket supports excellent community radio and gets you: 1) Tastings of all the soups from both home cooks and local restaurants, 2) a commemorative soup bowl to take home with you (for the first 100 attendees), and 3) A lineup of great vinyl spinning sets.

ALSO: We’re holding a big ol’ CD & LP sale at the same time & place. Lots of discs that the station doesn’t need. Take ’em home after you’ve sated your appetite!

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! We’re also holding a raffle for a variety of prizes: from WTJU logo items to a Go Pro camera.

Be one of our amateur chefs!

Do you make a good soup – and want to support the station? Email wtjusoup@virginia.edu or call 434-924-0885 and tell us you’d like to enter as one of our soup chefs. We’ll work out the details with you.

Prizes awarded to the Best Soup winners!

Hope to see you there!
