For a $5 donation, attendees gain access to a potluck dinner where they eat, learn, and vote for one of four projects they think will have the most significant effect on their community. At the end of SOUP ballots are counted, and the money collected at the door is awarded to the project with the most votes. SOUP acts as an unique networking event, connecting projects with potential community partners and volunteers regardless of whether or not they win the cash prize.
Each presenter is given five minutes to communicate their project to the audience without any digital aids (ie, PowerPoint), with additional time allowed for Q&A. Once all four projects have been presented, attendees get to eat, talk, share, and ultimately vote for the project they think will benefit Queens the most. At the end of the evening, the ballots are counted and all of the money collected at the door is awarded to the project with the most votes.
