Ridgeview High School’s Key and Sparrow clubs will be hosting an Empty Bowls fundraising meal on Sunday, February 9 from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The event will feature beautiful bowls made by Ridgeview High School teacher Brian Manselle’s ceramic students. Manselle and approximately 40 of his ceramics students have created 360 bowls for the event.
Attendees will receive hot soup, rolls and refreshments made by the culinary students at RVHS. Tickets are $10 at the door. All proceeds will benefit Jericho Road, a local charity that provides food and transitional housing to homeless families in the Redmond area. All participants will leave with a ceramic bowl of their choice.
The event has been completely coordinated using donated materials and funds. Local McDonald’s owners Paul and Kathy Rodby generously donated food materials for the culinary class to prepare for the event. Mark Keener, a local dentist, donated the funds to purchase ceramic materials to make the bowls. Former RHS graduate Chris Robertson and father, Steve Robertson donated 40 handmade bowls to the event.
“Kathy and I are always glad to support our local students and their efforts in all of our communities,” shared Paul Rodby, owner of Redmond McDonald’s. “All the credit goes to Jericho Road Foundation and their energy and actions they take to help families and children in need. We’re very glad to support them with our McDonald’s food donations!”
