The 10th Annual Bowls for Hope event is Tuesday, March 5, 2019, from 5-7 p.m. in the Riverview Ballroom in the University Center.

At the event in March, for an entrance fee of $25/adult and $5/children age 12 and under, participants may select and keep a bowl created in glass/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. Participants have the opportunity to vote for their favorite soup and a Chefs’ Choice Award will be awarded to the soup favored by the chefs participating in the event.

The 2018 Bowls for Hope event raised $6,500 for Family Resource Center St. Croix Valley. Since 2010, Bowls for Hope has raised more than $52,500 for local charitable organizations.
