ANNUAL EMPTY BOWLS FUNDRAISER
October 6th, 2-5pm

Join us for our fourth annual Empty Bowls fundraiser on October 6 from 2-5pm. This year our pottery sale will be in support of Women for Women International and is sponsored with delicious vegan ice cream from Kippy’s in Venice Beach!

Women for Women International supports the most vulnerable women in communities impacted by violent conflict and war. The programs sponsored by Women for Women International empower women financially, help protect their health, and position women to influence decisions in their homes and communities. Join us in supporting this incredible organization by shopping for beautiful hand-made bowls priced from $15+ and enjoying a treat from Kippy’s! 100% of the proceeds will be donated.

This is a great event for the whole family and a wonderful opportunity to get ahead of your holiday gifts by shopping affordable work made by local artists in support of an organization that is working to make a safer and more sustainable world by empowering and supporting women.

We hope to see you there!

In loving memory of Jill Mary Whittle Schoenberg Shinjin Peters.
