Artists from all around the area are busy crafting beautiful signature bowls that will be displayed all over the halls of the Boys & Girls Club in Gig Harbor. Why?…
… So you can come for lunch. Choose the bowls you wish to purchase (as price of admission) and then choose to fill your bowl(s) with a selection from 8 different homemade soups. As you eat your hardy lunch of soup & bread you will be entertained by the Peninsula Youth Orchestra and hear more about the Altrusa Foundation and the unfortunate system gap that results in many Gig Harbor children going hungry during the summer months when the supplemental school lunch program ends.
YES, Gig Harbor kids going hungry during the summer. As you sip your soup you will learn about the staggering statistics of low income families in the area and hear why our community does not qualify for summer food assistant programs. Altrusa of Gig Harbor is beginning to address this issue. Your bowl purchase at this first “Empty Bowls” luncheon is a big step in helping bring both awareness to this issues and help provide summer lunches to those at the Boys & Girls Club that go without lunch every summer.
So drop in anytime from 11am – 3pm on Sat. Feb. 20th, 2016 at the Boys & Girls Club in Gig Harbor and have a bowl of soup with us and take this opportunity to see this community facility that you can rent for your own fundraiser.
