Second Harvest Food Bank feeds nearly 160,000 people in East Tennessee each month, with lots of help from partnering agencies and donors like you! This month, Second Harvest will benefit from the talents of several local artists who have lent their craftsmanship for a good cause. On Thursday April 28 at Hunter Valley Farms, Bowlicious, an annual fundraiser, is taking place. Local potters have donated bowls they created to be used as serving pieces as well as decorative items for the auction.
For a $75 ticket, event guests will be treated to a cocktail hour, with wine and cheese from Cabot cheesemakers. Dinner includes a choice of gourmet soups provided by Calhoun's and a variety of breads and desserts. The best part is at the end of the event, guests will leave with a gorgeous handcrafted pottery piece.
"We are thrilled about being able to partner with the talented potters we have in our area," said Elaine Streno, Executive Director of Second Harvest. "This event speaks directly to our mission and will help us bring attention to the hundreds of thousands of East Tennesseans that live in poverty."
The idea behind having guests take their bowls home at the end of the evening is for the bowls to serve as a symbol of those who don't even have a bowl of soup to eat. Only 200 tickets are available so act fast if you'd like to attend! For more information about the event, or to get tickets, contact Susan at 865-521-0000.
