Late Event: Soup, Art, Feeding the Hungry

Posted By on Thu, Jan 17, 2008 at 2:32 PM

SACA (Southern Arizona Clay Artists) combines artful empty bowls with soup to help neighbors fight hunger.

On Saturday, Jan. 19, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Ike's Market, 13005 N. Oracle Road (just north of Tangerine in Oro Valley), enjoy a simple meal, and own an original artisan bowl (minimum $10 donation) which helps to serve as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world.

All money raised will go to Catalina Community Services.

Raku, sculpture and other nonbowl items will be offered in a silent auction.

Ike's Market is the newest grocery concept by Bashas'. It's out of my normal driving radar, but I stopped there once on my way home from the town of Oracle. I was impressed. It's different than AJs: more user-friendly and not as packaged.
