The Tuesday Evening Potters and St. Philip’s organist John Blackburn are teaming up for a “cool” organ concert and “Empty Bowls” — to be filled with ice cream donated by H-E-B — to benefit the Beeville Vineyard and St. Philip’s Berclair Mission Sunday at 3 p.m. at St. Philip’s.
“Empty Bowls” is an international project to fight hunger, personalized by artists on a community level.
After the organ concert, those in attendance may choose a bowl to be filled for a suggested minimum donation. For many such events, the bowls are filled with soup, but in August, the local potters decided ice cream would be much more appealing.
Dr. Sarah Gremmel, head potter, suggests a minimum gift of $20 for the concert and a bowl filled with ice cream. Larger amounts will gladly be accepted, while those who want to help but can’t afford that amount may opt for a plastic bowl for a smaller donation.
