Skyline’s Ceramics Club has partnered with grassroots organization Empty Bowls to host a fundraiser to fight hunger on Wednesday, April 21 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Skyline Cafeteria.

Empty bowls is a not for profit organization that started in 1990 and has been working on a national scale to feed the hungry. They have also focused more attention on making an impact in local communities by way of education and the arts.

A humble dinner of soup and bread provided by Pacific Dining will be served in the bowls made by the Skyline Ceramics Club. Guests will be able to keep their bowls as a token of gratitude for their charity and to remind them that the struggle to end starvation is an ongoing concern.

Barbara Frauman, a member of the newly formed Ceramics Club of Skyline College and a ceramics aficionado, assisted in the bowl-making process.

“Everyone is working hard to make it happen,” Frauman said of the 200 Empty Bowls Project.

There will also be entertainment provided by Skyline College’s Cheer and Dance Team, and students from the Intermediate Voice Class. Funding for the event will be provided by the Skyline Organization and Club Council (SOCC).

Although this will be the first time Skyline will host the 200 Empty Bowls Project, it very well may not be the last. 

“As a club, we wanted to do something that would have a local impact,” said Frauman. “Also, mixing fundraising with something you like to do is fulfilling.”

Guests will be asked to make a minimum donation of $10. The proceeds from the event will benefit the Dining Center of Daly City and the North Peninsula Food Pantry.

Tickets will be available at the door, and can be purchased in advance by contacting the ceramics club advisor, Tiffany Schmierer at [email protected]
