This year’s “Empty Bowls” fundraiser, held on Fri., May 3 at the Warwick Valley High School (WVHS), was hosted by the WVHS Empty Bowls Club and Warwick Valley Empty Bowls community volunteers. The event, with ice cream, pottery bowls and fun, raised over $5,000 to fight local hunger.
Warwick Valley Empty Bowls is part of an organized effort to fight hunger in communities across the U.S. and in other countries. Many attendees purchased a pottery bowl as a reminder of the event and the cause.
During the school year, the WVHS Empty Bowls Club student members work with Empty Bowls Club faculty advisors, Shari Blauner and Gina Buffardi and local potters to learn how to make, decorate and glaze bowls for this and other fundraising events.
Warwick Valley Empty Bowls is proud to have received a generous $1,000 award from the Altice Charity Champions program which recognizes area high school community service efforts. An Altice representative attended the event to present a check to Empty Bowls 2019.
