Ridgeview High and Redmond High host annual Empty Bowls fundraiser

Ridgeview High School and Redmond High School students are partnering to host the annual Empty Bowls fundraising meal at Ridgeview High School on Sunday, March 26, 2017 from 12 to 6 p.m.

Now in its fourth year, the event features hand crafted artisan bowls made by ceramics students at both high schools.

“Students and community members look forward to the Empty Bowls event as it’s a great combination of showcasing the beautiful work of our high school students – both the bowls and the food, and fundraising for a good cause,” Ridgeview High School Assistant Principal Jensine Peterson said. 

Guests will receive gourmet hot soup, rolls and refreshments made by the culinary students at RVHS. All participants will leave with a ceramic bowl of their choice. Additional hand crafted bowls will be available for purchase. A silent auction will also be featured. 

The fundraising event is coordinated using donated materials and funds. Local McDonald’s owners Paul and Kathy Rodby and Penhollow Ranch donated food materials for the culinary class to prepare for the event. Sponsors Jeff Larkin Realty and dentist Mark Keener, both of Redmond, donated money for the event.

Tickets are $15. All proceeds benefit Jericho Road, a local charity that provides food and transitional housing to homeless families in the Redmond area.

Tickets can be purchased online in advance at ridgeviewhs.seatyourself.biz, or in person at the door. For questions or more information, please contact Jensine Peterson at 541-504 3600 or jensine.peterson@redmondschools.org.
