Empty Bowls fundraiser
St. James United Methodist Church is proud to announce that they will be sponsoring Bowling Green's third annual Empty Bowls fundraiser on February 25, 2015. Empty Bowls is a fund raising event that raises money to support area food banks. For an Empty Bowls event, potters are asked to donate one or more bowls over the course of several months. On the night of the event, the public is invited to attend a fund raising meal. Each attendee is asked to make a $10 donation, and for their donation, they get to pick out one of the handmade ceramic bowls. They are served soup in their bowl, along with rolls, beverage and a dessert, and at the end of the evening, the bowl is theirs to keep. In addition to being a beautiful addition to their home, it serves as a reminder that there are many in our community facing empty bowls at meal times. All of the money collected goes to area food banks. The money from this year's event will be divided equally between the Manna Mart, run by HOTEL INC. and the Life Care Ministry run by the University Church of Christ.
For the second Empty Bowls event, area potters, including beginners, amateurs, and high school students, contributed over 400 bowls for the big night. Thanks to their efforts we were able to provide meals to many in the community who might otherwise have gone hungry. This year we are hoping to raise even more, as there are still many in our community who are in need. For those who would like to help, area artists and businesses, including Casey Bates, The Paint'n Place, and The Pots Place are all offering options to people who aren't potters but would like to contribute bowls. We are asking potters in the area, whether professionals, amateurs, or students, to help in this fight against hunger by making and donating bowls. Providing even one bowl can help insure that one family in our area won't go to bed hungry. If you would like more information or are interested in participating, please visit the contact page at http://www.emptybowlsbg.com, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone (270) 843-4550.
About Empty Bowls
The Empty Bowls fundraiser started more than 20 years ago as the brainchild a Michigan high school art teacher, John Hartom. His idea was to get his students involved in organizing a charity event to help them learn that we can each make a difference in the lives of others. The students made ceramic bowls in their school art classes and then held a fund raising dinner, serving soup in the bowls, and the contributing guests got to take the bowl home with them. During the next year, Hartom and others developed this idea into "Empty Bowls". Since then, it has spread to other states, countries and continents as a means of raising hunger awareness and supporting services for the needy.
