Clay Club hosting Empty Bowls dinner to fight hunger

The Northwest Clay Club will host an Empty Bowls dinner from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 13, at The Station.

Ceramics students, alumni and current and emeriti art faculty will create more than 300 soup bowls for the dinner. Local businesses, including A&G Restaurant, Aramark, Hy-Vee, the Mandarin Restaurant and Pagliai's are donating soup, pasta, bread and drinks.

Tickets cost $15 and are available from ceramics students or the Department of Art office on the first floor of the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door. All proceeds go to the Ministry Center in Maryville.

Empty Bowls is an international anti-hunger initiative to which potters donate handmade soup bowls for fundraising dinners. Diners choose a bowl, eat the soup and keep the bowl as a reminder of the "empty bowls" in areas plagued by hunger and poverty.

Entertainment at the Clay Club event will be provided by the Northwest String Quartet.
