Empty Bowls 2013 at Hartwick College

4th Annual “Empty Bowls” Event To Take Place at Hartwick College

November 14, 2013

Hartwick College will soon host its fourth annual "Empty Bowls" event - a grass roots movement which aims to help raise awareness of hunger and poverty in local communities. The event costs $15 and will be held on Thursday, December 5 from 5 - 6:30 pm in the Music Circle in the Anderson Center for the Arts building on the college campus.

Students in the Ceramics Studio at Hartwick along with The Clay Club, students, families, friends and members of the community from recent Bowl-A-Rama events have been working hard to create hundreds of handmade ceramic bowls for this year's fundraiser.  

With a donation of $15, participants will receive a handmade bowl to fill with soup. The Department of Art and Art History, The Clay Club at Hartwick and following local restaurants and organizations will assist in making this year's event possible:

·         The Autumn Café

·         The Green Earth

·         Hannaford Supermarket & Pharmacy

·         The Red Caboose

·         Simply Thai

·         Stella Luna

Tickets will be available starting tomorrow, November 15, 2013 and may be purchased from Assistant Professor of Art Stephanie Rozene, any member of the Hartwick College Clay Club, or at The Red Caboose Restaurant in downtown Oneonta. Tickets will be available on a first come first serve basis until sold out, and checks may be made payable to "The Clay Club."

Everything is donated to this event to ensure that all of the event's proceeds will benefit the community. This year, all of the Empty Bowls proceeds will be donated to The Lord's Table at St. James' Episcopal Church in Oneonta. The Lord's Table provides meals free of charge five nights a week to community members in need.
