Advance tickets allow each guest to select a unique handcrafted bowl donated by a local artist, potter or students, and dine on steaming delicious hot soup, bread and salad donated by local restaurants, all served up by local “celebrities”. The bowl is your’s to keep, as is the wonderful experience of coming together to support our community.
