"Empty Bowls" fundraiser to benefit local food and hunger programs
Posted on 10/26/2012
The fourth annual "Empty Bowls" fundraiser will be held on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 11:30 a.m.-1p.m. at Microtel Inn and Suites, 1597 6th Ave. W, Dickinson, N.D. Admission is $15 per person, with all proceeds dispersed by the Dickinson United Way chapter to local food and hunger programs in our community.
Created by The Imagine Render Group, Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. Potters, craftspeople, educators and others work with the community to create handcrafted bowls. Guests are invited to a simple meal of soup and bread. In exchange for a cash donation, guests are asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity.
Dickinson State University ceramics students and faculty will donate dozens of handmade bowls for the event. Other donors include, the DSU Graphic Art class, Mary Lovell, Microtel Inn and Suites, Mulligans Catering, Sacred Heart Monastery and Sysco Foods. Special corporate sponsor bowls made by Dr. Andrew McGarva, Robin Reynolds and Todd Winter are available by corporate sponsor donations.
