Bowls for Hope event raises money for charitable organization

October 30, 2015

Early each year the University of Wisconsin-River Falls works with the community to raise funds through the Bowls for Hope event in which proceeds raised help a worthy non-profit organization make a difference in the St. Croix Valley. Applications are now open for the 2016 recipient of this charity event. The 2016 Bowls for Hope event is Tuesday, March 8, from 5-7 p.m. at UW-River Falls.

To be considered for the 2016 Bowls for Hope proceeds to benefit your St. Croix Valley nonprofit organization, complete the Request for Funds form. Interested charitable organizations should submit their requests online by Monday, Nov. 23.

For an entrance fee of $25/adult and $5/children age 12 and under, participants at the event may select and keep a bowl created in glass/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. Participants have the opportunity to vote for their favorite soup. This year, a “Chefs’ Choice Award” will be awarded to the soup favored by the chefs participating in the event.

The 2015 Bowls for Hope event raised $6,225 for Bridge For Community Life, Inc. Since 2010, Bowls for Hope has raised more than $34,000 for St. Croix Valley charitable organizations.
