The event was the culmination of a project in which 1st, 3rd and 5th graders in Three Rivers schools made a clay bowl they donated to this community event.  Guests were encouraged to donate $5.00 to enjoy the dinner and take home a bowl of their choice.  A Silent Auction of bowls created by staff members was also part of the evening.

All proceeds will go benefit the Three Rivers area Emergency Care Network Food Site.
