Fundraiser for homeless youth planned for Feb. 7

Kingfield’s 2nd Annual Empty Bowls fundraiser is Thursday, Feb. 7, 4-8 p.m. at MLK Park.

Proceeds go to Nicollet Square, which provides affordable housing and support for 42 formerly homeless youth.

Attendees make a donation ($20 is suggested), select a handmade bowl by a local pottery artist, enjoy a meal of soup provided by volunteers, and keep the bowl as a reminder of neighbors in need of food and housing. Last year’s event raised $4,000, and this year Kingfield hopes to raise $6,000.
