LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Pottery bowls helped the YWCA of Greater Lafayette raise funds for their domestic intervention and prevention programs.
This was the 12th year of the Clay Bowl giving project. More than 20 pottery makers donated about 1,000 pottery bowls for the cause.
Organizers said every clay bowl served as an everyday reminder of each woman, child and man who was a victim of domestic violence in Indiana and lost their lives in 2012.
Executive Director of the YWCA Debi DeBruyn said donations and fundraisers like the Clay Bowl help them saves lives.
"They've been through some trauma, oftentimes horrific trauma, so any kind of donation to help us support the effort of the shelter would be always be welcomed," said DeBruyn.
The event took place on Thursday with a lunch and dinner from 5 to 7 p.m.
The cost was $30 and included dinner and the clay bowls.
