We started this little fundraiser nine years ago here within our pottery
guild and with a restaurant downtown and a wonderful charity "Waste Not"
here in Phoenix. Our effort yielded $29,000 last year, we made over 3000
bowls, all donated clay, glaze, firing, time and selling! We have a
celebrity/silent auction too, where we offer "bigger, special" bowls, or
those signed by celebrities, sometimes the celebrities will decorate them too.
It's been a real blessing for the community here, and even though it's
always lots of work for all of us each year, I am grateful to be able to be
a part of it. Nine years ago when it started here, there were a few
hundred bowls and they raised a thousand or two, it's amazing what can
happen when a lot of people get together to give.
PS Solicit donations to buy clay, food for serving etc...
