The Stewpot is a pretty amazing organization in Dallas that helps homeless and at-risk people rebuild their lives. This year, the Stewpot Alliance is holding its fifth annual Soup’s On! luncheon tomorrow at the Omni Hotel, where dozens of fine chefs are serving bowls of warm soup. (I hear it’s going to rain tomorrow. Perfect soup weather, don’t you think?) There will also be an art sale 0f 50+ paintings for serious browsing. The press release also includes these other entertainment goodies: “handmade jewelry from the artists of the Stewpot Open Art Programs, keynote speaker Wes Moore, emcee and Dallas Morning News columnist Steve Blow and a performances by The Dallas Wind Symphony and Booker T. Washington for the Performing Visual Arts Varsity Choir.”
