'Bowls for Hope' raises funds for nonprofits
October 31, 2014
Early each year UW-River Falls works with the community to raise funds through the "Bowls for Hope" event in which proceeds raised help a worthy organization make a difference in the St. Croix Valley.
Applications are now open for the 2015 recipient of this charity event. The 2015 Bowls for Hope event will be held from 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, March 10, at UWRF.
To be considered for the 2015 Bowls for Hope proceeds to benefit your St. Croix Valley nonprofit organization, complete the Request for Funds form found at http://bit. ly/1FZ49sS. Interested charitable organizations should submit their requests online by Friday, Dec. 5.
For an entrance fee of $25 for adults and five dollars for children ages 12 and under, participants at the event may select and keep a bowl created in ceramic/pottery classes at UWRF, River Falls High School, Meyer Middle School, the Renaissance Academy or by area artists. Attendees may also sample, at no extra charge, soups donated and served by area restaurants. Guests have the opportunity to vote for their favorite soup.
The 2014 Bowls for Hope event raised $6,600 for Grow to Share, Inc. Since 2010, Bowls for Hope has raised more than $28,000 for St. Croix Valley charitable organizations. For more information, visit http://www.uwrf.edu/BowlsForHope/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
