It's the middle of winter in South Florida, and while people from northern climes are flocking to our beaches, Floridians are breaking out the boots and bundling up in sweaters.
Some may say that we're namby-pambies who pull out the mittens when the thermometer reads below 75 degrees, but that's fine, because that also means it's soup season. And soup tastes doubly good when we're sipping it for a good cause. In that spirit, we're celebrating SouperBowl!
From today, January 31, through Tuesday, February 7, Panera Bread
locations in Broward and Palm Beach counties will donate $1 for every
bowl of soup purchased (does not include soup purchased in a pick-two combo) to the Pap Corps, a volunteer organization that supports research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, South
Florida's only university-based cancer center.
Since its inception in 1952, the Pap Corps has raised $39 million, more than $29 million in the past ten years.

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
