Pueblo School of Arts and Sciences to create and fill Empty Bowls on October 29

PUEBLO- The Pueblo School of Arts and Sciences (PSAS) will create bowls and then fill them as part of the 15th Annual Empty Bowls Night 2010 to be held from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 29 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 volunteers, students, and parents have provided hand crafted, decorated pottery bowls for the cause.

Empty Bowls is a national grassroots effort to raise money and awareness in an effort to end hunger and food insecurity. Each group that participates in the Empty Bowls project works with their community to create their own event.  PSAS first initiated participation in the Pueblo community more than 16 years ago in 1994.The school has been able to donate several thousand dollars each year to local food banks and soup kitchens through this project.

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.  Colorado businesses and more than 30 local restaurants contribute by donating food and services for the lunch and dinner.
The evening’s entertainment will be provided by PSAS instrumental and vocal students,  Aymoray School of  Dance, and  local musicians.  Local artists have donated artwork or handmade bowls for a silent art auction with all proceeds going to the local charities.

Tickets may be purchased at the event for $10, which includes the bowl of your choice to take home.  For more information, call Cynthia Ramu at Pueblo School of Arts and Sciences at 586-6816.
