• Plainfield fund raiser this Saturday to benefit The Gathering Place

    October 11, 2012 No comments

    A soup-tasting event this Saturday in Plainfield will benefit The Gathering Place, a nonprofit that provides a home for the terminally ill and their families.

    The third annual Soup’s On is from 2 to 5 p.m. in the garden at Rita’s Place, 147 N. Center St. Tents will be set up to shelter guests from the weather and from falling walnuts if it’s windy.

    Guests are invited to bring a bag and take walnuts home for holiday treats.

    Besides a variety of soups, the day will feature seasonal items, crafts and pumpkins for sale. There will also be live musical entertainment.

    Guests can tour The Gathering Place’s 105-year-old renovated home on the same property. Admission is free, and children are welcome.

    Executive director Rita Fiorentino founded the nonprofit 10 years ago, and The Gathering Place has grown every year since. The end-of-life care facility more than doubled its guests served from 2010 to 2011.

    For information, call (317) 797-2795 or visit www.thegatheringtogether.org.
