POULSBO — Poulsbo City Council members Linda Berry-Maraist and Ed Stern will be on hand to serve up soup at the second “Empty Bowls” fundraiser.
The fundraiser is Saturday, noon-1:30 p.m. at Gateway Church’s Fellowship Hall. All proceeds benefit North Kitsap Fishline.
Participants have created ceramic bowls and painted them with unique designs. Guests will be able to choose a bowl to use for their soup and baked bread, and take their bowl home.
The bowls represent all the empty bowls, or hunger, in North Kitsap.
Guests can give a suggested minimum donation of $15 per bowl.
Fishline received $2,500 at its first “Empty Bowls” event in 2012.
2013 “Empty Bowls” painters include:
— The North Kitsap High School pottery class, taught by Rande Anderson. Anderson and his pottery class also participated in the event last year.
— Attendees of Poulsbo’s Americana Music Festival.
— Bainbridge potter Chris Bristah, who donated 40 bowls.
— Other local artists and galleries, such as Verksted Gallery, and Indi Studio owner Susan Butler.
Some bowls will be set aside for anyone who wants to make a larger contribution to the fundraiser. A silent auction will be held for a few special bowls as well.
The soup is provided by Central Market. Three soups will be available, including a vegan-friendly choice.
Entertainment will be provided free of charge by Time and Tide, a trio of Bainbridge Island singers and guitar players.
