The Domestic Violence Intervention Program will host its 19th annual Souper Bowl fundraiser this Thursday, Feb. 11. The event will run from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Iowa City Hotel (210 S. Dubuque St.).

The cost of admission for the benefit ($25, or $15 for students) includes a take-home bowl of your choice, live music by Kevin BF Burt and unlimited soup provided by more than forty area restaurants, including Coralville’s 30hop and Hudson’s in Iowa City. The City of Iowa City is providing an additional hour of free parking in downtown ramps for those who attend. The event is sponsored by many local businesses, including Little Village.

The DVIP began in 1977 and serves eight Iowa counties. It offers a 15-bedroom shelter, 24-hour crisis intervention hotline, counseling, support groups, education, youth services and other assistance for victims/survivors of domestic violence.

Tickets to the Souper Bowl are available online as well as at Fired Up Iowa City (520 E. Washington St.) and Hills Bank locations in Coralville, and on Gilbert Street and at the Old Capitol Mall in Iowa City.
