‘Soupabration’ helps fund local wildlife treatment

Posted: Updated:

The 7th annual 'Soupabration' kicked off in Morro Bay on Sunday, stacked with 14 chefs competing for "best soup."

The event raised money for Pacific Wildlife Care, San Luis Obispo County's only licensed rehabilitation center that cares for injured birds, mammals, and reptiles.

The president of the organization, Kimberley Perez, says it costs about $1,000 a day to keep the rehabilitation center up and running.

"When the public finds wildlife that's hurt or orphaned, they don't know what to do with it, you just don't want to leave it. We're a place you can bring that animal," said Perez.

Celebrity chefs and judges participated in a "blind tasting."

Tickets were $50 for soup tasting and food sampling. A $65 ticket includes wind and beer tasting and a souvenir glass.

Perez says the event is their biggest fundraiser of the year.
