The Twelfth annual Empty Bowl Benefit and Auction will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2012 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Green Valley High School (460 Arroyo Grande Blvd. in Henderson). The event is sponsored by the Nevada Clay Guild, Green Valley High School, Aardvark Clay, and the Fiber Guild. Tickets will be $15 for adults and $12 for children and may be purchased at the door. All proceeds from the luncheon will benefit the Las Vegas Catholic Worker and their soupline serving the poor and homeless.
A lunch of soup and bread will be served in hand made ceramic bowls. Each attendee will select their own unique ceramic bowl made by members and friends of the Nevada Clay Guild and keep it as a lasting reminder of world hunger. A live-auction of bowls made by prominent artists will take place from 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. There will also be a silent auction during the event. For further information, contact Julia Occhiogrosso at 234-0755 (c) or Donna Potter at 799-0950 ext. 114034.
