Sponsored by Unalaskans Against Sexual Assault and Family Violence, the Choose Respect event in Unalaska/Dutch Harbor was held on March 31 at Unalaska High School. The rally was combined with an Annual Soup-a-Thon where community members bring crock pots filled with delicious soups and the soups are judged by a panel in each category: Exotic, Vegetarian, Seafood, Chowders and Stews, Chilis, and Youth Open Category. The winning soup chefs are presented with a $50 gift certificate. In addition to the Soup-off, the event is a fundraiser for the local shelter with donated items for silent and live auctions as well as door prize drawings. The shelter raised $14,000 in funds. Director of Administrative Services Leslie Houston attended as representative of the Administration.
