Souper Bowlder benefits the Boulder County AIDS Project
The Boulder County Arts and Crafts Gallery is stirring things up. Learn how buying a soup bowl will help make a difference in our community.
For fourteen years, Souper Bowlder has raised funds for those less fortunate in the community. Each year professional artists and novice pottery enthusiasts donate handmade bowls. The proceeds are then donated to a local charity organization.
This year, Souper Bowlder 2010 will benefit the Boulder County AIDS Project (BCAP). Pots sell for $15 and all proceeds benefit BCAP. Dan Hanley, director of development and communications for BCAP, said, "HIV/AIDS had a huge impact on the arts community. This was an effort for artists to support the work of an HIV/AIDS group."
BCAP also offers the opportunity to support a good cause — and enjoy some good deals. Lisa McDonough of the Boulder County Arts and Crafts Gallery said, "Many of these potters sell their bowls for a lot more than $15 normally. So on the one hand, when you're spending $15 for the fundraiser — all the money does go to BCAP — but you're getting a bowl that typically would cost you thirty to forty bucks."
Lisa said, "All the best bowls sell quickly."
This year's Souper Bowlder opening reception is Friday, October 22nd from 6 - 8 pm at the Boulder Arts and Crafts Gallery on Pearl Street. Free soup, courtesy of the Women's Bean Group, will be served in the bowl you purchase.
The Souper Bowlder fundraiser runs now through October 31st.
