Sharing the food we love and giving back to our community are two of the driving forces behind the Flatbread mission. We’ve always strived to be a business that would be a quality addition to its neighborhood and contribute to its community. In this vein, we’ve partnered with the folks behind one of Boise’s most social community events to be the venue sponsor of the 5th Annual Soup Tweetup on March 4, benefitting the Wyakin Warrior Foundation, providing comprehensive training for wounded and injured veterans.
Every year the Soup Tweetup brings together the community’s best culinary creators to serve up their answer to the classic comfort food to Boise foodies and social celebrities alike. In addition to the endless ladles of soup, a silent auction will provide guests the opportunity to bid on gift certificates and sweet swag from their favorite local businesses and artists.
Every year, all the proceeds from the event’s tickets and silent auction are donated to a local non-profit. The 2013 Soup Tweetup event successfully raised over $7,000 for the Ronald McDonald House.
The Wyakin Warrior Foundation is this year’s designated organization, providing educational and professional-development programs to injured and ill Post 9/11 veterans. This amazing foundation offers our service men and women the resources they need to better accomplish collegiate and career success. By joining the event and participating in the silent auction, you will help us as we aim to raise well over last year’s numbers!
The 5th Annual Soup Tweetup will be held at our new Downtown Boise location on the second floor of the 8th & Main Boise building. If you are a business or an artist who would like to make a donation to the silent auction to help us raise money, please contact Shannon Morgan at 208-921-7436.
The day of the event, March 4, also happens to be Fat Tuesday, turning this social extravaganza into an even bigger celebration. We invite you to join us in your Mardi Gras best as we open up our sliding doors over 8th Street. Stack on those beads and feathers because we’ll be randomly giving out gift cards to guests who dress for the festivities.
