Tomorrow night is the Empty Bowls Project fundraiser at Lillstreet from 5:00-8:00pm. Hundreds & hundreds of handmade ceramic bowls to choose from. I’ve donated these twelve bowls for the fundraiser. Stop by tomorrow to purchase a bowl, fill it with some great soup & bread from “First Slice”… and help a great cause!

The Empty Bowls Project is a nationwide effort by potters to end hunger. Lillstreet Art Center is proud to host this 7th annual event to benefit First Slice, a local hunger-fighting organization. Stop in for a modest meal of soup and bread, served in a bowl donated by a ceramic artist that you may take home as a reminder of all the other bowls you will have helped to fill. Bowls will be $25 each, and there is no limit to the number of bowls you may purchase. Sales begin at 5:00pm on a first-come, first-served basis.

Lillstreet Art Center – 4401 North Ravenswood (at Montrose), Chicago, IL 60640
Empty Bowls – Friday, April 11, 2014 from 5:00-8:00pm.
