I will post the announcement below if anyone is interested in helping the hungry in our county.
The “EMPTY BOWLS” fund raiser, for the Mitchell County Food Bank, is coming up quickly. It will be held May 4th, 2012.
The purpose of Empty Bowls, is to have local potters donate bowls, which will be sold, filled with soup, to those who come to the event. All proceeds go toward buying groceries, to fill the shelves of the Food Bank. The food will then be distributed to those in need, in Mitchell County. It is a wonderful opportunity for artists to give back to our community.
Calling ALL Potters:
Please make bowls to donate. We will be collecting the bowls at the April Clay Club Meeting. The Food Bank hopes to have over 200 people come to the Empty Bowls Event.
That’s a lot of bowls! (Call to say how many bowls you will commit to donate. ph.765-7140 Annie)
Donate as many bowls as you feel you are able. Also please provide a business card for each bowl. Some bowls may be auctioned. Sets of bowls welcome.
