Pueblo School of Arts and Sciences to create and fill Empty Bowls on October 17

The Pueblo School of Arts and Sciences will create bowls and then fill them as part of the 13th Annual Empty Bowls Nite 2008 to be held from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 17 at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. A $10 ticket offers you a meal, entertainment, and a pottery bowl to take home. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. with dinner from 4-7 p.m. PSAS volunteer students and parents have provided hand crafted and decorated pottery bowls for the cause.

The empty bowls project is a nationwide campaign to create hunger awareness. PSAS first initiated participation in the Pueblo community more than 13 years ago in 1994.

All proceeds will go to local charities including, Pueblo Community Soup Kitchen, Posada, and Way Side Cross Gospel Rescue Mission. Funds donated will be used to provide food and housing for displaced and needy families within the Pueblo community.

The evening’s entertainment will be provided by PSAS instrumental and vocal students, Aymoray School of Dance, and local musicians.

Colorado businesses and more than 30 local restaurants also will contribute by donating food and services for the dinner.

For more information, please call Cynthia Ramu at Pueblo School of Arts and Sciences at 549-2616.
