This year’s Empty Bowls fundraiser will be held Sunday, January 26 at 11a.m. at Rye Presbyterian Church.
For the past 13 years the Clay Art Center and Rye Presbyterian Church have provided a valuable community service by hosting an annual Empty Bowls fundraiser. Each year artists and students make clay bowls, which are then glazed, fired, and sold at the Empty Bowls event, to help raise awareness about hunger.
The Clay, a not-for-profit ceramic art center in Port Chester, organizes the event with Rev. Dan Love and the Rye Presbyterian Youth Group. Together, along with a host of volunteers, they have raised over $65,000 over the last 13 years. The fundraiser brings the youth group to the center twice in January to create their own unique ceramic bowls to contribute to the sale.
This year’s Empty Bowls fundraiser will be held Sunday, January 26 at 11a.m. at Rye Presbyterian Church. The community is invited to enjoy delicious hot soup and bread, donated for the event, and purchase the handmade bowls. Last year, the event raised $4,000 for Port Chester’s Interfaith Soup Kitchen.
