It was a close vote, but in the end, the Salida High School Drama Team won the 29th Salida Soup pot of cash, totaling over $600.
The dramatic Spartans were up against two other strong contenders: the Outdoor Nature Experiences (O.N.E.) Chaffee County and the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Parade & Potluck.
Devon Kasper, the coordinator of the Drama Team, told the diners on October 19th that she had started a Kickstarter campaign to help get the kids to Denver for the Colorado Theater Conference (ThesCon) in December.
As Kickstarter is an "all or nothing" campaign, Kasper told the crowd, "if we don't meet our goal online, I would like the money we won to be divided between the other two presenters."
If you are interested in helping Devon and the Drama Team reach their Kickstarter goal, go here! The Team's deadline is October 30.
