The Faith Community Partnership of Bethany United Methodist Church and Glen Mar United Methodist Church and Wilde Lake High School are hosting the 11th annual Soup‘r Sundae, a family event featuring soups prepared by area restaurants, as a fundraiser for Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center on Sunday, March 17, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., at Wilde Lake High School, 5460 Trumpeter Road, Columbia, MD 21044.

Special St. Patrick’s Day features include a performance by the Teelin Irish Dance Company from 12-12:15 p.m., as well as scones from Renata’s Tasty Bites and other surprises. There will be a silent auction with hundreds of items, 50/50 raffle, music and entertainment for children.

Admission is $20 per adult and $5 per child under 12 and includes unlimited soup and bread and ice cream. Over 600 people attended last year’s event, including 80 volunteers from Howard County high schools.

Grassroots also manages the county’s emergency shelter for men, women and families who are homeless and serves as the single point of entry for the Coordinated System of Homeless Services.
