Whether a professional or amateur artist, adult or student, you can help your mountain neighbors while having fun creating art. Mountain Resource Center is seeking bowl donations for Empty Bowls, its major annual fundraising event to fight hunger and support struggling mountain area families. Last year, the event raised almost $19,000 through the generosity of community members and local businesses.
Empty Bowls requires about 600 unique bowls to be donated in advance of the event. If you can help, your donations are needed by Oct. 1. Here are some suggestions on how to contribute bowls:
• Purchase and paint a bowl at GoPaint in Evergreen. Call 303-679-3089.
• Create and/or decorate a bowl at River Canyon Gallery in Bailey. 303-838-2950.
• Sponsor a celebrity bowl. Purchase a bowl at GoPaint and have a local artisan decorate it.
• Sponsor a local student group, such as the Boy or Girl Scouts to paint bowls.
• Host a bowl party for team building, girls’ night out or family fun. Call GoPaint or River Canyon Gallery to arrange a private party.
• Buy a handmade bowl from your favorite art gallery and donate it.
Would you like to own one of these handcrafted bowls? You can choose a bowl and enjoy a meal, conversation and entertainment! There are three opportunities to participate: Wednesday, Nov. 5, at Mountain Resource Center, 11030 Kitty Drive in Conifer for lunch, any time between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., or supper between 5 and 8 p.m.; or Thursday, Nov. 6, at the Evergreen Lake House for lunch between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Tickets are $25 and may be purchased after Sept. 1 in person at Mountain Resource Center, 11030 Kitty Drive, Conifer; online at http://www.mrcco.org; or by phone, 303-838-7552.

Community members – artists and amateurs – have been creating and decorating one-of-a-kind bowls for weeks, and your opportunity to acquire one is fast approaching.

Empty Bowls, hosted by Mountain Resource Center, is the major annual fundraising event to support mountain-area families. It is part of an international grassroots effort to end hunger and food insecurity.

There are three opportunities to participate: Wednesday, Nov. 5 for lunch any time between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. or dinner any time between 5 and 8 p.m. at Mountain Resource Center, 11030 Kitty Drive in Conifer; or Thursday, Nov. 6 for lunch any time between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Evergreen Lake House.

Event participants enjoy a delicious meal of hearty soup, bread and dessert. They also choose a gift bowl to take home. A special selection of finely crafted bowls and food-themed offerings will be available in a unique silent auction at each event.

Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, students, artists and volunteers in our community have been busy creating unique bowls for the event. Local restaurants and caterers are donating the food. Major sponsors for the event are Churchley Financial Group, Go Paint, River Canyon Gallery and Thrivent Financial.

Space is limited, and reservations are strongly recommended. Tickets are available for $25 and may be purchased at Mountain Resource Center, 11030 Kitty Drive in Conifer; online at www. mrcco.org; or by phone, 303-838-7552. In honor of our veterans, you may purchase a ticket to donate to a veteran in our community as a thank you for their service to our country.
