‘Empty Bowls Project’ raises awareness of hunger
Artists organizing May 2 fundraiser in Bay Ridge
Visitors who come to the Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church in Bay Ridge on May 2 will get a chance to purchase handcrafted, beautifully decorated bowls that will be on sale at the church on that day only. But the bowls aren’t going to be sold as part of a flea market.
Instead, the bowls are being put up for sale as part of a fundraiser for Bay Ridge programs that provide food for hungry people.
Called the Empty Bowls Bay Ridge Project, the fundraiser is being organized by artists Ed Huml and Danielle Bullock. The sale will take place on Sunday, May 2, at the Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church, 6773 Fourth Ave., from noon to 5 p.m.
This year marks the third year that the Empty Bowls Bay Ridge Project has taken place according to Huml, a potter and art teacher who said the two previous fundraisers generated approximately $2,000 each time.
