The first Grandmont Rosedale SOUP was a huge success! Dr. Conja Wright went home with more than $1,100 to start a Meditation and Reading Park at the Redford Branch of Detroit Public Libraries. (You can hear updates about the project at the upcoming SOUP event.) Now it’s YOUR chance to win.

Ever wish you had a few hundred dollars to fund a good idea? The Grandmont Rosedale SOUP Committee (in partnership with Detroit SOUP) is currently accepting proposals to enter into a fundraising contest on October 27, 2013, at 19120 Grand River. Submit your proposals by October 8th to or drop off a hard copy at Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation, 19800 Grand River or Always Brewing Detroit, 19180 Grand River.  Up to four proposals will be selected for presentation at the Grandmont Rosedale SOUP contest on October 27th.

Anything goes! Project ideas can range from beautification projects to spaying stray cats to enhancing your business! Proposals should include (1) your contact information, project name and summary, (2) why your project matters to the Grandmont Rosedale community, (3) how you will use SOUP funding towards the realization of your project, (4) the time frame for your project, and how you would share its progress/completion at an upcoming SOUP event.

Join us on Sunday, October 27, at 19120 Grand River.  For $5, you get soup, salad, and a vote for your favorite project (the winner receives the entrance fees). Doors open at 4 pm, proposals presented at 5 pm, dinner at 6 pm, winner announced by 7 pm.


Costumes encouraged on the day of the event! Bring your jack-o-lantern to 19120 Grand River on Saturday the 26th from 10-12 PM to enter into our pumpkin-carving contest.
