Loving Bowls and Special Silent Auction
December 15 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Celebrating 10 years and over 10,000 Loving Bowls!
Sedona Arts Center will proudly present its annual Loving Bowls charity fundraiser on December 15 from noon to 3pm at the Historic Art Barn in Uptown Sedona. This fantastic fundraiser offers a beautiful selection of Loving Bowls for your purchasing pleasure, plus loads of food and fun! Over 1100 bowls have been made and lovingly glazed in a variety of finishes by professional volunteer potters. Bowls are $10 each and come with wonderful chili, bread and desert.
As one of Sedona’s favorite local charitable events, the Arts Center’s creative Loving Bowls fundraiser is right around the corner in Uptown, Sedona. This year, the event’s proceeds will go to the Sedona Food Bank, Sedona Community Center, Humane Society of Sedona and the arts and educational programs at Sedona Arts Center.
Loving Bowls began as a small event and a tribute to Sedona Arts Center’s magnificent ceramics community. Today, Loving Bowls is a major gathering of creative people! Join hundreds of other local arts supporters for a unique annual event that offers a beautiful selection of handmade bowls.
Executive Director, Vince Fazio says, “The entire community looks forward to Loving Bowls each year, benefitting the non-profits that provide needed services to the community with a beautiful event that also provides a chance to get together and enjoy delicious chili, shopping for bowls, and camaraderie with friends. It is a beautiful experience. We are very grateful to all the volunteers that made bowls all year long!”
