Empty Bowls Program to Be Held December 7
November 14, 2007 - Knightstown High School recently announced its third annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser Dinner on Friday, December 7, from 5-7 p.m. in the KHS cafeteria. Once again, high school art students will be decorating original ceramic bowls, and FACS students will be serving homemade soups and breads. In addition, students announced that this year, the sixth graders from Knightstown Intermediate School will be joining Empty Bowls efforts as they decorate their own bowls in art class.
Last year, students donated $1,000 each to the Knightstown Cheer Guild and the Knightstown Food Pantry, thanks to CAB students and the generosity of the schools and community.
“We are able to fund this year’s dinner because of a grant from the TASC group, a part of the Henry County Community Foundation, and because of a silent auction we held last year in conjunction with the Empty Bowls dinner,” said KHS English teacher and Empty Bowls co-sponsor Rachael Shepherd. “During the evening, we conducted a silent auction of theme-filled bowls that were created by CAB students, staff members, community members and businesses that donated items. This year we are hoping to involve even more members of the community.”
Shepherd said any person, group or business could:
*Donate money used to create a theme-filled bowl to be auctioned on a person or group’s behalf.
*Donate items students will use to create a theme-filled bowl to be auctioned on a person or group’s behalf.
*Donate a theme-filled bowl to be auctioned on a person or group’s behalf.
“You or your group might enjoy creating a bowl that reflects your business, organization, or interests,” Shepherd explained. “It just takes a few people, donating a few items each, to create a fantastic bowl!”
Those planning to donate to the auction may contact Rachael Shepherd or Bobbie Rogers via e-mail, or if theme ideas are needed. Tickets for the event are $10 each.
“Buy a ticket, come to the dinner, choose a bowl, enjoy a wonderful dinner, and take your bowl home as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world,” Shepherd said.
