What is GeroSoup?
GeroSoup is an innovative event that crowdfunds support for local innovations and ideas. This GeroSoup, Pollinators are targeting local community groups to talk about the work they are currently doing to spread the Goodness in their community.
Whether you are a sports group, charity, animal rescue, dance group, arts group, school group or something else – we want to know about what you are doing for your community. Pollinators invites you to come and speak about your local group while learning about others.
Every person in the room not only hears about great ideas but can also pledge $$ to each of these inspiring community groups.
The meal, venue and event is FREE thanks to our partners, while the $20 you bring is yours to allocate to the community groups you want to support on the night.
