This marks the 11th year for the fundraiser benefiting Treasure Coast Food Bank.
Each year, hundreds of area school children create ceramic bowls by hand for the event. Filled with a serving of soup, they symbolize a meager meal and raise awareness and support for those struggling with hunger in the community.
For $20, patrons will receive a custom tote and the bowl of their choice filled with fresh, hot soup.
This year, soups will be prepared by Fort Pierce Central High School Culinary Arts students and Treasure Coast Food Bank’s new production kitchen.

An all-star lineup promises to score big for the Southport Middle School (SPMS) National Junior Honor Society’s (NJHS) cancer awareness fundraising efforts. Impressed with the students’ efforts to fundraise, Southport’s lead basketball coach Kerry Parks pledged to help support NJHS’s efforts by donating additional proceeds from the Annual Hoops for Life Celebrity Charity Basketball Game scheduled for March 31, 2018 at SPMS.
According to his wife, Dean Yolanda Parks, “Coach has been working day and night to bring together an All-Star basketball game between Team Gridiron and Team TKO that includes former St. Lucie County football players Yamon Figurs, Albert Wilson, and Jamar Chaney.” Yamon Figurs graduated from Westwood and played in the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens. Albert Wilson graduated from PSLH and currently plays for the Kansas City Chiefs, and Jamar Chaney, current coach at Centennial High School, played for the Philadelphia Eagles. Other players on Team Gridiron include Damien Berry and Khalil Mach, who has donated signed pictures and basketball shoes that will be included in a charity benefit.
Athletes for Team TKO include James Mcgirt Jr., son of all-time great Buddy Mcgirt, Roy Jones Jr., and Orlando Rivera. James Mcgirt Jr. is one of the top middleweight boxers in the world. Roy Jones Jr. was pound for pound the best fighter in the world at one time and has won world titles from super welterweight to heavy weight, and Orlando “The Warrior” Rivera, is a 5X kickboxing champion and a top 10 boxer in the world.
There will be a special half-time performance by Kayylove & Schooly who will sing for guests during this spectacular event for cancer awareness. Allapattah Flats School Counselor Sheri Reichard and her family have been invited as special guests. All donations will continue to help raise cancer awareness as well as social awareness to spread love in our school and community.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at BIGWILLFIGHTFORLIFE.EVENTBRITE.COM for $10. Doors open at 12 pm. Tip-off is at 1 pm for the SPMS All Star Basketball Game. Immediately following the All Star Game, there will be a 2-Ball, Celebrity 3-point Contest and then the 5-on-5 Celebrity Basketball Game.
In Mrs. C. Bonilla’s PreKindergarten class at Mariposa Elementary, the students discussed many different kinds of paper. This included where paper comes from and what different things we can create with it. The students practiced writing, drawing, cutting, and gluing the paper.
Madison Barr wrote, ” Paper comes from trees.” She drew trees to illustrate her sentence. She practiced copying, starting with a capital letter, and left appropriate spaces between the words.
Jackson Anderson is standing in a circle with his classmates holding the paper chains they created. He said the paper chain looked like a friendship chain. The students enjoyed learning about paper and the uses of it that day.
