The event benefited the children who are helped by the Sarah Reed Children's Center. The center works with children who have emotional and behavioral problems.
Some in attendance, like Cathy Dombrowski, have attended the fundraiser for the center for all 15 years. But for others, this was a chance opportunity to try over soups from 16 of Erie's best restaurants.
"I'm up here on business and happened to be riding and saw this and I thought that it was a great cause," said Daniel Cramer from Virginia.
The winner of the competition - which the people voted for - was the Ambassador Center's Philly Cheese Steak Soup.
