April 16, 2003 This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
I look forward every year to attending the Community Nursing Services' ART & SOUP CELEBRATION. I love good food and fine art and this event gives me the opportunity to enjoy both at the same time.
Frank and Renee Suitter are the co-chairmen of this year's 15th annual celebration of the popular event and they tell me they anticipate more than two dozen of the state's top chefs will be on hand to present their finest and favorite soup recipes. There will be judging and awards made to the winners of the soup contest. Judges include Norma Matheson, Ogden Mayor Godfrey, JoAnn Jacobsen-Wells, Robert Kirby, Scott O'Neill, Jim Shea, Upton Ramsey, Glen Hawkins, Jonas Kage, David Yocum, Steve Brown and Muffy Davis. They have a very tough job! I judged for many years and can tell you it is VERY difficult to select winners from all of the delicious soups. They All are winners!
There will not only be opportunities to feed you stomach -- you can also feed your spirit. Dozens of famous and talented Utah artists will display and offer for sale their works of art. Artworks from every medium will be offered for sale and there will be an opportunity to view and then bid on selected works through a live auction.
Community Nursing Services is Utah's oldest free standing not for profit home health and hospice agency providing service for residents of all ages. CNS relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations to fund programs that offer support to those in need. The annual ART & SOUP CELEBRATION is a great way to offer support and enjoy great food, beautiful art and have a great time.
So, the celebration will begin with a Black Tie Dinner on April 22 and the art show and soup-tasting extravaganza will be held on the following two days. Lunch on April 23 and 24 is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. with dinner from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The events will again be held at the Sheraton City Centre.
