Location: Ouray Community Center
III Fundraiser in Ouray. This event features bottomless bowls of soups from
area restaurants that will be served-up in over 100 hand-painted ceramic
bowls from community artists (young and old). Following the event,
participants get to take their bowl home!
Soups have been generously donated by area restaurants for this event. In
addition, desserts will be provided by the Weehawken Board of Directors and
area restaurants and caterers will also feature desserts at this event.
Further, Applebee’s will be providing breadsticks and two delicious beers
will be available at the cash bar!
Soup season started back in August for volunteer artists attending the
Ridgway Rendezvous Arts and Crafts Festival. At that event, people began in
the process of hand-painting bowls in preparation for the winter tradition
of the Weehawken Soup-er Bowl Supper. While many bowls were charmingly
painted by youngsters back in August, several bowls have also been painted
Ouray and Ridgway Senior High School art students and also by some
professional artists in the area. Regardless of who painted it, each bowl
was painted with total originality and care and will soon make its way to
its new home in a cupboard!
The Weehawken Soup-er Bowl Fundraiser takes place on January 30th at the
Ouray Community Center Massard room. The cost is $18 for individuals wanting
to take home a ceramic bowl and eat endless soup or $10 for individuals
wishing to just come and enjoy the soup (in a bowl they return to the
kitchen). Or, for families: $40 includes dinner for everyone and two ceramic
hand painted bowls to take home. All other family members will enjoy soup
out of the returnable bowls under that $40 fee.
This event will begin at 5:30 pm and will run until 8:30 pm. This year’s
event will also feature LIVE MUSIC as well as a silent auction with items
from the Weehawken Clay Center as well as items from the 2013 Ridgway
Selection of ceramic bowls will be available first-come,
first-served/selected. No early birds, please! Doors will open at 5:30 pm.
