'Tis the season for soup: Sir Ben's helps fundraise for Best Christmas Ever

Posted: Updated:
DULUTH, MN -

Sir Benedicts Tavern on the Lake in Duluth is helping fundraise for a family in need one bowl of soup at a time. 

Best Christmas Ever is a program that helps out more than 100 people in the community every year. 

Mel Ratai, who is heading the campaign, takes the money raised, and uses it to pay a bill for someone in need. 

Those who benefit are nominated by someone else. 

For every soup ordered during this week, Sir Ben's will donate a dollar to the cause. 

"I just think this time of the year especially, there are so many people who are struggling. I am just fortunate to be able to be doing so well. I am so lucky to have my health and family supporting me. Just wanting to give my time and energy to help others right now," Best Christmas Ever Captain, Mel Ratai, said. 

If you are not a soup fan, but still want to donate, there is a box set up on the counter at Sir Ben's.
