Ferndale Rotary teamed up with Capuchin Soup Kitchen this year for their annual Winter Warm Up Soup Contest, held at Shriner’s Silver Garden in Southfield. The grand event featured soups from several local businesses as well as gourmet desserts and a large silent auction.

The winner of best soup was Green Zebra Food Truck out of Royal Oak with their White Bean Chili.  Woodward Avenue Candy Shop won for best dessert.
