Bowls for Hope Invites Charitable Organization Requests

November 7, 2013--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. Applications are now open for the 2014 recipient of this charity event. The 2014 Bowls for Hope will be held Wednesday, March 12, from 5-7 p.m. at UW-River Falls. 

To be considered for the 2014 Bowls for Hope proceeds to benefit your St. Croix Valley nonprofit organization, complete the Request for Funds form found at http://www.uwrf.edu/BowlsForHope/FundRequest.cfm. Interested charitable organizations should submit their requests by Dec. 2. 

For an entrance fee of $20/adult and $5/children 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. 

The 2013 Bowls for Hope event raised $6,385 for the Free Clinic of Pierce and St. Croix Counties. Since 2010, Bowls for Hope has raised more than $21,000 for local charitable organizations. For more information, visit http://www.uwrf.edu/BowlsForHope/ or email mary.vangalen@uwrf.edu.
