The third, fourth and fifth graders at Ignacio Elementary School, along with help the community, are busy creating custom-made clay bowls for the Empty Bowls fundraiser taking place Thursday, April 30, from 5 to 7 pm at the elementary school. Empty Bowls is an event to help raise awareness and funds for families who are experiencing food insecurities.
Led by art teacher, Lisa Brown, the students have made over 200 unique and beautiful bowls that will be available for purchase at the event. The event will include a variety of homemade soups, as well as a silent auction featuring many different items from local businesses.
The students have done their part by crafting all the wonderful bowls and now they need help from the community to fill those bowls.
Tickets for the event are $10 per person or $35 for 4. Each ticket includes a purchase of one of our handcrafted bowls, a soup dinner, and invitation to the silent auction. If you are unable to attend, purchased tickets can be given to a local family to attend the event. All proceeds will benefit both local and international families struggling with hunger. The students are also looking for volunteers to make some soup for the event, as well as items for the silent auction.
For ticket information, contact Lisa Brown at 970-563-0675, ext. 362. For silent auction item donation and soup donations, contact Vicki Sutton at 970-563-0675, ext. 343.
Please join Ignacio Elementary on April 30 from 5 to 7 p.m., as we work together to turn empty bowls and stomachs into full ones!
