Bowls aplenty

Kitchen's fundraiser will be Thursday

ASHLAND — With rewards including a one-of-a-kind bowl hand-crafted by a local artisan, organizers expect a good crowd for Thursday evening’s annual “Empty Bowls” event to benefit Ashland Community Kitchen.

“We are hoping for a big crowd. A lot of people just come in and choose a bowl, but a lot of people like to take the time and mingle and have dinner,” said Alfreda Moore, the Kitchen’s executive director.

The Empty Bowls meal offers supporters their choice of handmade bowls turned, glazed and fired by either Sam Perkins of Liberty Ridge Pottery, or volunteers working at Pottery Place studios and the Marshall University Art Department. The dinner will consist of soups, breads and desserts, provided with the support of area businesses, including Orange Leaf, Cheddar’s, Wendy’s, Chick-fil-A, Tim Horton’s and Texas Roadhouse, which is sending a crew to help tend to the dinner crowd at the Kitchen.

The event, from 5 to 7 p.m., will also feature a silent auction, with items including an autographed photo by John Calipari, said B.J. Fraley, one of the event organizers.

Moore said the bowls are a huge draw for Kitchen supporters.

“People love the handcrafted bowls,” she said. Each one is individually crafted. Some may look similar, but each is unique. There are no two bowls that are exactly alike. That’s what makes them unique.”

Tickets for the event are $10 each and available in advance by calling (606) 325-8144.
