Whistle Stop ClayWorks presents ‘Empty Bowls’ to benefit L.I.F.E. food pantry, during Grailville’s Local Fest – May 24th
Empty Bowls benefit sponsored by Whistle Stop ClayWorks
Noon – 5 p.m., Saturday, May 24th
at Grailville's Local Fest held
Event is free. Bowls are $12 each
100% of proceeds go to Loveland Inter Faith Effort (L.I.F.E.) a food pantry to feed the hungry.
Empty Bowls aims to bring awareness to the many families with empty bowls on their tables and raise money for the organizations that support those families.Whistle Stop ClayWorks is hoping this benefit will bring even more support from the community to aid Loveland food pantry.
The Cincinnati Clay Alliance organization sponsors a major Empty Bowls event every year which benefits Freestore Food Bank (serving children who are vulnerable to hunger). However this is the first one benefiting the Loveland community. All of the profits from ClayWorks’ Empty Bowls sales will go to L.I.F.E. food pantry.
“It’s really great to be helping out with such a good cause,” said Kay Bolin O’Grady, co-owner of Whistle Stop ClayWorks. “We are excited to be involved in this new venture for ClayWorks.”
Tim O’Grady, another Whistle Stop ClayWorks co-owner said, ”The event would not be possible without the support of our community and the local clay artists. We anticipate hundreds to turn out for Empty Bowls during Grailville’s ‘Local Fest. Local artists as well as our students helped make bowls for this event. It’s gratifying to see that kind of teamwork.”
Tim O’Grady added, “We are happy to partner with the Empty Bowls event this year and are looking forward to seeing the extra support from the community. To use a quote from the FOE, Fraternal Order of Eagles, ‘People helping people’ is what it is all about”.
Whistle Stop ClayWorks is at 119 Harrison Avenue in Historic Downtown Loveland along O'Bannon Creek
