Organization to host beer garden fundraiser

United Way of Northern Ozaukee is kicking off its new campaign season this weekend as it operates the Port Washington beer garden in Upper Lake Park from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9.
    The organization will not only be selling beer and food, it will also collect nonperishable items for area food pantries as well as its second annual Stone Soup event.
    Nonperishable food items needed for the soup event include pasta — particularly rotini and bowtie — canned tomatoes, tomato paste, rice, Parmesan cheese, crackers, corn and vegetable and chicken stock.
    Volunteers are being asked to sign up for the Stone Soup event, which will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 7, at St. Peter United Church of Christ in Saukville.
    Volunteers can sign up to provide food items for the soup, including chopped garden tomatoes, leeks, onions, squash, zucchini and fresh basil.
    Last year, 125 volunteers helped make 100 quarts of soup for people in need.
    This year, the hope is to make 150 quarts, Executive Director Barbara Bates-Nelson said.
