The Palmetto Woodturners, part of the American Association of Woodturners, is hosting Bowls for the Hungry for Harvest Hope Food Bank Thursday, September 29 at the Hall at Senate’s End, 320 Senate Street. Custom wooden bowls will be sold during the event at a signature silent auction.
“September is Hunger Action Month, and we are holding this event to make people aware that hunger exists for one in five people in South Carolina,” said David Elwart, president of the Palmetto Woodturners. “Our members have been working all year to make custom bowls for this special event. It’s a great opportunity to purchase a piece of art at a fun-filled evening!”
Participants will be able to bid on handcrafted wooden bowls during the silent auction. All proceeds will help Harvest Hope’s mission to bring meals to fill the bowls of struggling families. Tickets are $35 in advance and $45 at the door and will include heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine, and beers.
“Because of organizations like the Palmetto Woodturners, we are able to serve more than 15,000 families every week,” said Amy George, Harvest Hope donor relations manager in Columbia. “We are so thankful for such great community partners.”
