Keep your kilns hot, it’s time to make bowls for SAMMinistries 2019 Empty Bowls!
Why do we do this?
SAMMinistries is an interfaith ministry whose mission is to help the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless in San Antonio attain self-sufficiency by offering, with dignity and compassion, shelter, housing, and services. Last year, Empty Bowls raised $83,433.00!

How can we help?
Host a Bowl-a-Thon on a weekend, donate glass bowls, donate artwork to the silent auction, volunteer to pick up soup, or volunteer the day of the event.
Hosting a Bowl-A-Thon
Contact Leah Stephen to host a bowl-a-thon at 210-381-6447, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will provide the glass which has been graciously donated by various members, and the melting forms. We just need the studio space and someone to donate kiln time.
Saturday, February 2: Bowl-A-Thon held at A&A Products in Seguin.

Donate Glass Bowls
Make a glass bowl that would sell for $25 in the signature bowl sale, or make a $50 bowl to sell in the elite series bowls! If you need ideas for making a simple scrap glass bowl, download my recipe here: Bowltutorial.docx
Glass bowls can be accepted up until the morning of the event on March 3, at 10am.
Donate to the Silent Auction
Donate anything to the silent auction. Pieces of artwork, tickets to a basketball game, or class time at a studio for example! Any donation is very much appreciated. All donations are due the day of the event, on March 3 by 10am to Leah Stephen. The form explaining your donation is due to be turned in to Leah by February 17 because we need to get it to the printer ahead of the event. Download the form here: EmptyBowlsDonation.docx
*If you are donating to the silent auction, you MUST have the form filled out and turned in to Leah by February 17! All donations are catalogued and must get a printed auction sheet made before the event.
We need volunteers to pick up soup from various restaurants on Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2. We also need volunteers for the day of the Empty Bowls event, Sunday, March 3. There will be two shifts available, 8:00am-12pm and 12pm-3:30pm. Please email Leah at email@example.com to volunteer.
