Don't Forget- If you are donating to the Silent Auction we need the auction sheet filled out and turned back in by February 17! Download it here: EmptyBowlsDonation.docx
Bowl donations can be dropped off to Leah up until the day of the event!
For $25 guests may select a bowl crafted by one of our local artisans along with a serving of soup and bread donated by local restaurants and caterers. Cash, Checks, & Credit Cards Accepted.
For $50 or more, special "Artist Curated Bowls" will be for sale for the more discerning art collector.
Silent Auction art pieces will be for sale from some of the best artisans in our region, along with donations from local businesses.
SAGAG will be volunteering again for our fifth Empty Bowls! Donate a glass bowl, donate a silent auction piece, or volunteer the day of the event. We will have a SAGAG tent set up to display the many talents of our glass artists and for community outreach and education.

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 email@example.com. 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer.
