The Empty Bowls Project of Northwest Ohio
ARTFULLY FIGHTING HUNGER
Come Join the many International and Local Artists that have stepped up to answer the call to help fill empty bowls and Impact Over 48,000 Families in Our Community.
The Empty Bowls Project of Northwest Ohio in partnership with The Seagate Food Bank of Northwest Ohio (www.theseagatefoodbank.org) and Gathered Art Gallery and Studios (www.gatheredartgallery.com)have joined to host an Empty Bowls Fundraising Event on Sunday December 23rd 2012 from 5:00pm-9:00pm
The one day event (http://www.facebook.com/theemptybowlsprojectofnorthwestohio) is an open community fundraising event in which attendees makes a $10.00 donation and then select a one of a kind handcrafted bowl. After selecting a bowl, the donator will be able to enjoy a light meal of soup from one of the most respected restaurants in Toledo, Barry’s Bagels. Once the meal is complete, the attendee keeps the hand-made bowl as a reminder of the empty bowls the donator has helped to fill. The money raised by this event will be donated to the Seagate Food Bank of Northwest Ohio to be used in local programs that will ensure that families in need will receive food during the Holiday season and the cold winter months.
Another facet of this fundraising event is a silent auction of one of a kind pieces of art. Award winning and internationally acclaimed artists have created an original bowl for this event. The artists include Laura Donefer (http://www.lauradonefer.com/), Boyd Sugiki & Lisa Zerkowitz (http://www.boydsugiki.com/), Jeff Mack (www.toledomuseum.org), Robert Geyer (http://robertgeyer.com), Nadine Saylor (http://www.nadinesaylor.com), Jill Allen (http://www.jillallan.com), Clay Leonard (http://www.reclaimingthetable.com) , Adam Goldberg (www.gatheredartgallery.com) with several others artist joining everyday.
