Las Vegas, Nevada (January 5, 2024) – Tackle Hunger, Sports Philanthropy Network and Hope For The City, are proud to launch the Inaugural Souper Bowl of Caring – LIVE event Super Bowl week in Las Vegas. The event aims to host over 7,000 attendees. A unique highlight of this event is the opportunity for VIP guests to engage and lend their support to end food insecurity as part of the Super Bowl.
The Souper Bowl of Caring is a nationwide movement to address hunger-related challenges. Fusing innovation with tradition, this initiative leverages the energy of sporting events to raise donations and awareness for local food charities nationwide. Intending to have every viewer of the Super Bowl game contribute $1 or one can of soup, the Souper Bowl of Caring seeks to raise 15 million meals this year.
“The Souper Bowl of Caring is a beloved tradition for thousands of grassroots groups across the country who use the Big Game to help their neighbors in need,” said Alison Reese, Executive Director of Tackle Hunger. “This Souper Bowl of Caring LIVE Logo year, we will celebrate a milestone of $200 million donated, which means over 600 million people have had a ‘bowl of soup to eat’ because of this unique initiative.”
The Souper Bowl of Caring – LIVE event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at 5:00 PM at Central Church in Henderson, Nevada. This exceptional evening will feature live awards presentations from local, national, and international media outlets, eleven megachurches, and over two hundred other watch partners. “This event unites us in the spirit of giving but also underscores the profound impact we can achieve when we combine our resources and efforts,” said Kayla Bradham, EVP of the Sports Philanthropy Network. “Let’s come together to tackle hunger and create lasting change, creating hope and possibility for the people who need it most.”
This year, the focus is on raising funds for the Tackle Hunger Map, an innovative initiative that employs data-driven solutions to bolster local food charities nationwide. A strategic partnership with NFL Alumni through the Tackle Hunger Challenge ensures that students facing Hunger have access to essential food resources. This event unites us in the spirit of giving but also underscores the profound impact we can achieve when we combine our resources and efforts to tackle hunger and create lasting change.”Kayla Bradham, EVP, Sports Philanthropy Network
