Due to an astounding amount of effort put forward by staff, students and community residents, the Babylon School District’s annual Souper Bowl of Caring event recently raised more than $3,000 for Habitat for Humanity and collected 630 food items which will benefit those less fortunate.
Babylon’s Souper Bowl of Caring event, which just celebrated its third consecutive year, featured more than 125 students who volunteered their time, along with 44 entrants for the cooking and bake-off competitions.
The district congratulates the following winners from each respective category – seventh-grade students Ava Hanson and Riley McKeown (Best Cake/The Unicorn Cake), The Higgins Family (Best Soup/ Broccoli Cheddar Soup) and the Leo Club and Mr. Birnbaum (Best Chili/ “The Leo Club EL Chilly”).
The district would like to thank all of the students, families and staff members who attended the event, along with Babylon Junior-Senior High School art teachers Patricia Stork and Cheryl Schweider for creating custom helmet trophies for this year’s winners.
