Steamboat Clay Artisans’ Soup Bowl Supper Committee is seeking a nonprofit organization to be the beneficiary of its 2004 fund-raiser.

For the past two years, members of the Steamboat Clay Artisans have created handmade, one-of-a-kind ceramic bowls that are given away to ticket holders at the event, as well as other ceramic items that are auctioned during the fund-raiser. The fund-raiser is expected to net at least $5,000 for the beneficiary.

For the fund-raiser, SCA creates the ceramic wares, handles publicity and provides member-volunteers at the event to distribute the bowls, take tickets and coordinate the silent auction. The group requests that the beneficiary organization help sell tickets, procure food donations and manage the food service at the event (including table settings, serving trays/pots, serving food, clean-up).

The deadline to be this year’s beneficiary has closed. The selection of the beneficiary will be made and announced no later than March 31. Call Deb Babcock at 846-9349.
