16th Annual Bowl-A-Thon
18, 2012, the Sunday before Thanksgiving, CAW Studio Potters,
faculty, and students will work with the Community Soup Kitchen
and other local businesses to help fight hunger.
The public is
invited to visit the CAW Pottery Studio between 1:30 and 5:00
pm to take part in this charitable event. Make a donation
and receive a beautiful handcrafted mug or bowl filled with
hearty soup and fresh baked bread on the side. Proceeds benefit the Community
Soup Kitchen. Suggested donation levels are $15 for soup-sized
bowls and mugs, $10 for smaller items, and special items at
$30 and up.
CAW faculty and
students are encouraged to begin making bowls and mugs for this
year’s event so that it can continue to grow and raise even
more funds to help feed the hungry.
This annual event was the idea of CAW Studio
Potter Margie Haggerty, who based it on the Empty Bowls Project,
an international effort to fight hunger begun in 1991 by ceramic
artists. This event would not be possible without the dedication
of the Studio Potters and the work of CAW faculty and students.
