Soup cook-off raises awareness about child abuse

Community members are sipping on soup for a cause.

Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A.) hosted its eighth annual soup cook-off to raise awareness about child abuse in our area.

Sixteen soups were entered into the contest.

There were three people’s choice awards, in addition to a celebrity chief’s choice award.

One organization member says they want to make sure kids can just be kids.

“It’s really important for kids to be able to be kids, and I think they need to know that there is a community that cares about them, and they deserve to enjoy their lives and not live in fear,” “Karma” Rosanne St. Sauver said.

All the proceeds from the event go to local children that the organization works with.
