Early each year the University of Wisconsin-River Falls works with the community to raise funds through the Bowls for Hope event in which proceeds raised help a worthy organization make a difference in the St. Croix Valley. This year, BRIDGE for Community Life, Inc. has been selected. 

The Mission at Bridge for Community Life, Inc. is: BRIDGE collaborates with school, county and community youth serving agencies in providing lifelong learning opportunities for youth and others with disabilities.

The 2015 Bowls for Hope event will be held Tuesday, March 10, from 5-7 p.m. at UW-River Falls.

For an entrance fee of $25/adult and $5/children age 12 and under, participants at the event may select and keep a bowl created in ceramic/pottery classes at UWRF, River Falls High School, Meyer Middle School, the Renaissance Academy, or by area artists. Attendees may also sample, at no extra charge, soups donated and served by area restaurants. Guests have the opportunity to vote for their favorite soup. 

Tickets can be purchased at the River Falls Chamber of Commerce office or by contacting the Chancellor's office at (715) 425-3201.  Tickets will also be available at the door.  Purchasing tickets in advance will guarantee a bowl.

The 2014 Bowls for Hope event raised $6,600 for Grow to Share, Inc. Since 2010, Bowls for Hope has raised more than $28,000 for St. Croix Valley charitable organizations.
