This past weekend was great! annie turned 4 and we had our final bowl-a-thon for Empty Bowls. Empty Bowls is a fundraiser for our Wichita Falls Area Food Bank. In short, the artist in Wichita Falls throw 1,000 bowls to hand out as part of your ticket into the event. The event is held on October 13th this year at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU from 11AM to 1:30PM.
Tickets are $35 in advance and $40 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at the area United Supermarkets, Market Street, or at the Food Bank in Wichita Falls. I am helping with the event this year and I strongly encourage you, if you haven't been, to consider attending. All proceeds benefit the hunger in our community.
Lunch is included with your ticket. around 20 restaurants from Wichita Falls will be donating and serving a variety of delicious soups.
We held 3 bowl-a-thons this year and had such a great time, the talent is amazing. There is so much more work that goes on besides these three days. The help we receive from the ceramics department at MSU is huge and we are forever grateful!
Everyone really welcomed little Annie in on this past Saturday's bowl -a- thon and it made my heart warm to see how excited she got about something being made by hand.
