ARTISTS NEEDED FOR EMPTY BOWLS FUNDRAISER

We at the Geauga Humane Society, a non-profit, unlimited stay animal shelter and humane education organization, are having our 4th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser on March 18 of this year. This is a highly successful fundraiser for us (last year alone we raised $38,000), due to people who believe in and support the humane treatment of animals. Support can be in the form of attending our events or donating goods or services to enable us to put the event together.

Here's where you can help...
The premise of this event is this: for a $50 admission fee, our guests are offered a meal of yummy soups and chili donated by area restaurants, along with breads and desserts. With their admission, our guests are able to choose from over 400 handcrafted ceramic bowls donated by area potters, students, etc. Although we don't actually serve their soup in the bowls, they must be food safe to use as they wish when they take them home. It is a great way of thanking them for their contribution, and the guests literally line up an hour before opening that evening in order to be one of the first to pick from the wonderful display of bowls! The rest of the event features music, a silent auction of art in any media and a live auction of hand-painted bowls from celebrities (sports, music, movies, etc.) who have agreed to participate as well. If you would like to help us out by donating either ceramic bowls or a piece of art in another medium for the art auction, please contact me. We would like to have all donations by March 1st unless you have a prior arrangement with me. We need to know what we have to work with well in advance of the March 18th event.
Please contact: Barb Corkran @ gonetothedogs_99@yahoo.com

Thank you!

I got this from my friend Gina. I think if anyone wants to...we could get together at some paint your own pottery place and make bowls to donate.  Anyone interested?  I am going to contact Barb and see what she needs. 

If anyone would like to donate art for the auction, I am sure they would appreciate it.

Ruth

more on the fundraiser.   anyone want to do this with me???

Thank you so much for your reponse! I am so glad that
we are getting a lot of response from the e-mail that
I sent out. The Geauga Humane Society has been a part
of my life for over 10 years when I walked dogs for
them at their old facility, and they have come a long
way and are doing such wonderful things, including
education, to end the plight of homeless animals.

You can either go to a paint your own pottery place or
you can throw your own pottery if that's what you do.
We just need to make sure that the glazes are
food-safe. Some of the bowls people  will use for
serving, etc., and some may be used as an animal's
bowl. Use your own creativity... we love to see what
wonderful ways people decorate their bowls! They can
be animal-themed or decorative, whatever you see when
you contemplate your bowl. Have fun with it... our
attendees just love searching out their favorite to
take home with them.

We should have the bowls to us by March 1st. If you
have an idea of how many might be coming in I would
appreciate knowing that beforehand as well. You can
give me a call @(440) 473-6113 when they are ready and
I will arrange a pick-up with you.

I am looking forward to having your group as a part of
this event. If you have any more questions, please
don't hesitate to e-mail or call me.

Thank you!

OH! That sounds like such fun! I've never painted a bowl before, but I might like to...I honestly didn't know there were paint your own pottery places around here. I guess when I think about it, it makes sense, but I just have never thought about it. hmmm...shut up Amanda, you sound stupid. Okay, I'm done. What I meant to say was, sure...I'm in!

there is one in Cleveland Hts...studio you.  There are 3 that I can think of on the westside.  Artist for a Day in N.olmsted, Just Clayin Around in Westlake and Studio Aria (Huh?not sure on the name) in Rocky River.

I've never done it before either.  But I thought it would be fun.

A bunch of my friends are going to do it.  I am thinking some Saturday afternoon.  I am not sure about whether it will be this saturday or next.   

I will keep you posted.

I am thinking probably a Fri evening or Saturday late afternoon at Just Claying Around in Westlake.  They are open to 10PM on both those nights. 

next Friday?  Are you free?   I am going to email my friends that want to do it tomorrow.

I have to work next Friday. Tongue I may be able to rearrange my schedule a bit, but I don't know. I am off that Satuday for sure though, and I know I have nothing going on as of yet.

This is what I just sent to my friends..
So I am proposing either Friday Jan 27 evening or Saturday Jan 28 afternoon.  We can do dinner after on Saturday or go out after on Friday or whatever.  So if you are interested...let me know which date you like better if you have a preference.  Majority will rule on this.  Or if I have an even split...hell I'll do both. 
 
Feel free to forward and bring friends!  OOOOH the venue will be Just Clayin Around in Westlake.  They are open to 10 at night.  If I have enough people I can get an group party rate.  www.justclayingaround.com

-----------
I marked you as preferring Sat.  Btw...what's your first name?  I am Ruth.

That would be fine if you give them to me on the 11th.  I am to contact the person in charge by the end of the month to arrange delivery of the bowls.

It was so fun!  Sorry you had to miss.  But I will go paint pottery anytime.  That was just WAY TOO MUCH fun.

YAY! I'm glad y'all had fun! I can't wait to do mine...the boy and I decided to wait until after payday to do it...early enough that I can still give them to you at the get together, though. I can't wait!
