Back in the winter of 1872, Caroline Astor was the self-crowned queen of New York Society. She formed a group called Mrs. Astor’s Four Hundred. The 400 was a ‘Who’s Who’ of New York Society. These elite 400 were invited to a special gala ball at Mrs. Astor’s palatial mansion each year. There was no real purpose to the Four Hundred except that they were seen as special and above everyone else.
Now let’s fast forward 139 years to the year 2011. The SoupMan & his fabulous SoupTeam have come up with a variation of Mrs. Astor’s 400. Our idea is called the Souper 100. Unlike the 400 which had no purpose other than to lord over others, the Souper 100 will have one major focus – to support the SoupMobile’s mission of helping the ones Jesus called the ‘least of these.’
Our Souper 100 will be composed of 100 ladies (yes, it’s ladies only) who are on fire for Christ. 100 smart, creative, and out of the box thinking ladies who will be willing to use their power, influence, and energy to help the SoupMobile in its mission of ‘Feeding & Sheltering’ the homeless.
The Souper 100 will meet quarterly at the fabulous downtown Dallas Ritz-Carlton Hotel for tea and crumpets. In addition to socializing with 100 other women who are passionate for serving Christ, you will be challenged to come up with creative, imaginative, and ingenious ways to support and help the SoupMobile. If you are looking for a dull, button down, by-the-books Mrs. Astor type organization, then the Souper 100 is NOT for you. However if you are looking to be part of something that will flat out rock your world for Jesus, then you have found a home.
Souper 100 members pay a $1,000 Annual Membership Fee. For some of you, that will not be a problem. For others you may have to stretch to make it happen. Whatever your situation, I want you to know that your Annual Membership fee goes directly to our mission of ‘Feeding & Sheltering’ the homeless. For more information on the Souper 100, CLICK HERE.
May the Lord Bless & Keep You All.
