Annual Bowl of Thanks to benefit homeless people and their pets

You will get to fill these bowls with wonderful food from Harbor restaurants.

Please join us on Sunday November 6th, 11-4pmĀ  for the First Annual Bowl of Thanks Fundraiser to benefit the Ventura County Rescue Mission, Lighthouse for Women and Children,and Buddy Nation, a non-profit helping pets and their human companions of Ventura County.

Thanksgiving is perhaps the one time that people actually think about what they have – food, housing, family, safety, security. Homeless people don’t have these things, but they are grateful to have a good meal in a warm and friendly place. The Bowl of Thanks will allow many people to enjoy that good meal at Thanksgiving.

The Ventura County Potters’ Guild(VCPG), The December Store and More and the Ventura Port District are sponsoring the Bowl Of Thanks at the Ventura Harbor Village. Founded in 1957, VCPG members and friends are donating 150 gorgeous handmade ceramic bowls.

For $25 you will receive a bowl of your choice and a punch card that will lead to the harbor’s 17 eateries that are donating samples of their food. Fundraiser supporters will receive tasty treats like clam chowder, Cuban fusion, quiche, and fudge, just to name a few. A raffle will be held that will include a chance for a dinner for 2 from Brophy’s Seafood and more.

Presale will be held Saturday November 5th, 11 – 6 pm at the Ventura County Potters’ Guild Gallery, across from the Carousel. Bowls are available both days at the December Store and More. Limited to 150 bowls.

All monies raised will go directly to these charities who work year round to make life better for homeless people and their pets.
