LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Local potters and artists will donate hundreds of handmade and glazed bowls to be given out at the 18th Annual YWCA Clay Bowl Giving Project.
Those who attend will be able to choose either lunch or dinner and also select one of the bowls to take home. Proceeds from the event will be used to further the YWCA mission of providing safety and hope to victims of domestic violence.
Leah Giorgini is the Domestic Violence Program Director with the YWCA, and she said appreciates the time and dedication given by the potters donating to the project.
“I'm always blown away by the creativity and how amazingly beautiful all the pots are,” Giorgini said. “So they have no idea what that little bit of time and artistry they're giving, what difference this makes to peoples' lives.”
Giorgini emphasized the goal of the project is to help the projects and programs offered by the organization, and she encouraged those still on the fence about attending to give it a second thought.
“If you feel moved by justice for women, justice for survivors of crime, if you want to be a part of a bigger picture of social justice, female empowerment, and social equality in our community, then come and be a part of this event.” Giorgini said.
