Nearly 100 painters participated in Our Home Family Resource Center’s annual “Create A Bowl” event held at Brew Nation/Potters House on Main on January 18. In addition to creating 194 unique bowls, this group of people raised $3080 for Empty Bowls Mercer County 2020 Campaign.
Painters who raised at least $50 in donations were entered into a participation raffle. Winners include : Shanna Barns (gift card to UEC Theater); Sharon Green, Carol Hone and Ann Boyer (Celina-Mercer Chamber of Commerce gift certificates); and Owen Colson (Westwood Car Wash Certificate). Each also received an Empty Bowls Mercer County T-shirt.
The winner of the 50/50 drawing was Sandra Lane.
The bowls created at this event will be gifts for the guests at Our Home’s Empty Bowls Dinner & Auction on Saturday, April 4, at American Legion Post #210 in Celina. Tickets for the dinner are on sale now at Our Home, 117 W Fayette Street in Celina and at Chief Supermarkets in Celina and Coldwater.
All proceeds from Empty Bowls Mercer County will be used to support and expand Our Home Family Resource Center’s programs and projects.
