The Bowl of Hope is a unique event where potters donate and sell handmade bowls filled with ethnic food to raise funds for the needy. This year the money will go to youth in Belize.
At the Bowl of Hope event ticket holders choose their own pottery bowl (to keep) have it filled with ethnic food while enjoying live music and an art auction.
The event starts at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 28 at the Streaming Cafe 596 Leon Ave. Tickets are on sale at Streaming Cafe for $25 and must be paid in cash or cheque. A tax receipt is also available by contacting the Bowl of Hope.
The groups Facebook page states, "The evening is cultural, friendly and inspirational, as lives are changed through this effort."
Some of the the bowls were created by Ted Legate of Shedding Dog Pottery.
This is Legate's second year supporting the Bowl of Hope.
“It’s giving someone a bowl to keep, as they’re donating to a good cause” Legate explained.
Marijanel Knight, one of the organizers, is grateful for Legate's bowls and she is thrilled a sponsor stepped up to help put the food into the bowls.
"I want to publicly thank Save-On-Foods of Lakeshore Centre in Kelowna for informing us today that they've agreed to supply our caterer with all the groceries for the Bowl of Hope! This is fabulous news! Thank you Save-on-Foods."
Entertainment will be provided by Jimmy & Nikki, while Jimmy sings and plays guitar Nikki creates art, live! She uses an easel and paints, letting the music flow through her.
For more information check out the group's website.
Here is a music, and paint, video by Jimmy and Nikki.
