The organization will pivot their long-standing fundraising event to an online celebration.
BETHLEHEM, PA. – New Bethany Ministries will hold its 29th Annual Souper Day event virtually on October 13, 2020, at 12 p.m. Funds raised from the event will be used to support New Bethany’s on-going efforts to combat housing and food insecurity in the Lehigh Valley.
“I’m excited to continue the tradition and celebrate Souper Day virtually this year,” stated Marc Rittle, Executive Director of New Bethany Ministries. “It’s such an important time for our community to come together and help those who need it the most. New Bethany is grateful for the continued support that allows us to make an impact for our clients.”
The virtual event, produced by ASR Media Productions, will feature event emcee, Will Lewis, Reporter/Anchor for WFMZ- TV Channel 69. Additional highlights include a community conversation panel with Bethlehem City Mayor, Robert Donchez; PPL Executive Vice President, Joanne Raphael; and PBS39 Executive Producer and Host, Monica Evans. Attendees can expect to hear from New Bethany clients and board, learn more about the organization’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak, and witness the unveiling of the nonprofit’s new logo and website. Long-standing Souper Day co-chair, Rich Hooper, will be recognized for his years of service. New Bethany Ministries is pleased to announce Aesculap, Inc., Air Products & Chemicals, Inc. and Olympus Corporation of the Americas as Souper Hero sponsors for this year’s event.
