1200 Bowls Made for Empty Bowls Project Feb. 25
By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - This year's Empty Bowls Project has been moved to the Julian Carroll Convention Center in anticipation of a bigger than ever turnout.
According to Michael Terra, the project's passionate artist/organizer, "I am delighted to say that from now until the 15th we are fully booked for glazers. Thank you all! Good news, we are going to be doing a once-a-month Empty Bowls Glazing day here in the studio all year. Looking forward to seeing you at the Convention Center on the 25th."
The project, designed to feed the hungry in Paducah, will be held on Saturday, Feb. 25, from 11 am to 4 pm. All proceeds benefit the Community Kitchen. You can purchase tickets through the Downtown Coffee Bar or the Terra Cottage Studio, 514 North 7th St., in advance or at the door on the day of the event!
Want to help the hungry in Paducah by participating in this event? Here are a couple of ways to get involved:
* Volunteer to move bowls, sell tickets, and everything in between at the project itself. Many volunteers will be needed if this event is as popular this year as it was last year!
* On the day of the event, you can buy a ticket for $15, pick out a unique handmade bowl, and fill it with your choice of food from participating restaurants. Then, take your one-of-a-kind bowl home as a souvenir.
Last year was the first year for the event. It raised over $13,000 for the Community Kitchen with 900 handmade ceramic bowls and food donated from a dozen local restaurants.
