At WHAM Art Association, we are pleased to announce we will host our 6th Annual Bowls of Hope event in conjunction with our Art Bazaar and Sidewalk Chalk Art 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. Saturday at the WHAM Community Art Center, 16560 N. Dysart Road, Surprise.
Our volunteers are busy getting ready for this special event. They are hand building, throwing clay on wheels and glazing food-safe bowls that will be on display.
On the day of the event, per bowl, the community will be able to choose from the many beautiful handmade bowls for a $12 donation to purchase each.
WHAM is committed to giving back to the community and providing hope to such ones in the community. This event benefits local food banks that provide food for those in need, as well as funds for a home for battered women and shelters for veterans in the West Valley.
Current statistics show Arizona hunger rates to be higher than the national average. St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance reports that one in five Arizonans, one in four children and one in seven seniors live in poverty.
Sun City Grand Clay Club has been contributing to making many of the bowls and donating them to WHAM for this worthy event as well. Together our goal is to have several hundred bowls available for members of the community to select from.
Please join us and help fight hunger in Arizona and give those who are suffering. To learn more about our events or how you can donate or volunteer, call 623-854-8311.
Connie Whitlock is the executive director of the WHAM Art Association, 16560 N. Dysart Road.
