Empty Bowls to be filled

Becky Campbell (left) and Cynthia Gurreri, are preparing for the Family Resource Network’s fourth annual Empty Bowls event. The fundraiser, which will be held on Friday, October 23, from 6 to 8 p.m., will benefit the Harvest House Food Pantry. Due to Covid-19 precautions, instead of having a sit down supper, the evening’s format will be a little different.

The handcrafted bowls, made by Pocahontas County artists Cris Bartlett, Cynthia Gurreri, Eric Stahl and Tracey Walker, will be set up at the FRN Family Center, at 821-A Third Avenue in Marlinton, where guests will be invited in to select a bowl and homemade soups and breads will be served for dining alfresco or carry-out. Weather permitting, guests will gather at Discovery Junction.

Tickets are available in advance or at the door and cost $25 – which includes a unique, handcrafted bowl, your choice of soups, a side of bread, a dessert and drink. Mask etiquette and social distancing will apply. For more information, contact Becky Campbell at pocahontasfoec@hotmail.com or 304-799-6847.
