February 21, 2019 – Tickets are now available for the 10th Annual Bowls for Hope community event on Tuesday, March 5, from 5-7 p.m. that will benefit the River Falls Sunshine Fund. Everyone is invited to take part in this event held in the Riverview Ballroom of the University Center at UW-River Falls.
Each March UW-River Falls works with the community to raise funds through the Bowls for Hope event where proceeds raised help a worthy organization make a difference in the St. Croix Valley.
Tickets can be purchased at the River Falls Chamber of Commerce, 215 W. Maple Street, at the UWRF Chancellor's Office in 116 North Hall or at the Information Desk in the University Center on campus. For ticket sales questions, call 715-425-3201. Tickets are also available at the door.
For an entrance fee of $25/adult and $5/children age 12 and under, participants may select and keep a bowl created in ceramic, pottery, fibers and wood by area artists. Attendees may then sample, at no extra charge, soups donated and served by area restaurants. Guests have the opportunity to vote for their favorite soup.
River Falls Sunshine Fund is a compassionate high school student lead nonprofit organization that offers help to families and students in the greater River Falls area in times of crisis.
