Service project in March: Empty Bowls

On March 7 2013, we gather at Art As You Like It to paint Easter eggs or other ceramics, as well as contribute to an annual fundraiser for Place of Hope called Empty Bowls.

Empty Bowls is a community collaboration project that creates awareness for hunger, homelessness and a community that" cares about its underserved population".  Art As You Like It offers hand-painted bowls, painted by their customers and friends, to the annual soup supper fundraiser that is held each year in March.

MOMS Club members come to Art As You Like It to paint the bowls, and then all of the bowls are donated to the fundraiser benefiting Place of Hope. The fundraiser, a soup supper event, is a gathering of community where soups, breads, and desserts are enjoyed, as well as some local entertainment and a silent auction.

The 2013 fundraiser will be held at Calvary Community Church in St. Cloud, MN, on Sunday, March 24th, 2013 from 12pm- 4pm.
