Bowls for Hope benefits Free ClinicTaken from the March 6, 2013 print edition
University of Wisconsin-River Falls will hold its annual Bowls for Hope from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday March 12 in the Riverview Ballroom, University Center. Proceeds this year will benefit the Free Clinic of Pierce and St. Croix Counties.
For an entrance fee of $20 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under, participants will select and keep a bowl that was created in ceramic/pottery classes at UWRF, River Falls High School, Meyer Middle School, the Renaissance Academy, or by area artists. Attendees may then sample, at no extra charge, soups donated and served by area restaurants.
Guests will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite soup of the evening.
The Free Clinic of Pierce and St. Croix Counties serves approximately 700 patients a year, more than 60 percent of whom have household incomes below the federal poverty level. For every dollar raised, the clinic can provide $33 of prescription medications.
