Dear Potential Supporter:

We are writing to ask for your support for this year’s Hot Soup Cool Jazz Event, scheduled for May 1st   2018 at the Delta Hotel. As you may be aware, The Jimmy Pratt Memorial Outreach Centre Inc. is one of the four charities that organizes this fundraising event annually. This year’s event will truly be a unique evening featuring some of the most prestigious restaurants in St. John’s such as Raymonds and Portobellos, as they compete in a gourmet soup competition. All proceeds from the event are in support of individuals facing mental health challenges, homelessness and poverty here in the province.


After ten successful years, we have decided to make a few changes to ensure supporters like you will truly enjoy the Hot Soup Cool Jazz experience. Come mingle with friends, stakeholders and celebrity servers while enjoying gourmet soups, live jazz music, a silent auction, raffles and some new fun games you won’t want to miss!


Hot Soup Cool Jazz is more than a fundraiser, it’s a collaboration of like minded organizations that work every day to improve the lives of their clients and patrons. With the active involvement of TD Bank Group as a major sponsor, participating restaurants, other sponsors and donors, volunteers and attendees; this fun evening has become an integral event for the Canadian Mental Health Association of NL, The Jimmy Pratt Outreach Centre, Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues and Choices for Youth.
