The night has officially come! Our 2017 Empty Bowls fundraiser at First Friday Scranton on May 5th, 2017 has finally came and gone after months of preparation and planning! A huge shoutout to former blogger Emma Pilon, who has made this event possible! We had just about 250 completed bowls, and they ranged in shape, color and size. These amazing handmade bowls ranged in price from $10-$20, and with each purchase of a bowl, purchasers received a complementary scoop of ice-cream.
The Zeta Omicron Art Honor Society members did a wonderful job of not only making beautiful, hand crafted bowls, but running the event as well. It’s a great experience for all of the members, and there are always so many customers interested in the process of the event, especially when it comes to how to make the bowls! The hosts of the event at Electric City Escape, Amy and Ryan Hnat, were kind enough to let us use their venue, and also for the remainder of this week they are selling the remaining bowls! We didn’t have many left, but we are set on selling out!
This night came together perfectly thanks to many helping hands. Be sure to head over to Electric City Escape if you missed the sale on First Friday, and pick up one of the left over beauties! All of the money made goes to Meals on Wheels NEPA, and we know they are so thankful!
