We did it! Yes we did. It’s 10:26 pm on Friday, January 30. I am bowled (excuse the pun) over by the grace and generosity of the 800 (yup!) people who showed up at this event today – 20-40 minutes waiting in line during the lunch seating and not one complaint! 328 people and $4000 for the food bank.
The dinner seating began at 4pm. By 8pm 462 more people had come through the door, chosen their bowls, eaten their scrumptious soup and made their donations.
Ginny O’Flynn played the harp during the dinner seating, Janet Crawley threw bowls on the wheel during the lunch seating and I threw bowls on the wheel during the dinner seating. There was at least one set of parents who were amazed that their 7 and 9-year old sons were motionless and quiet for an extended period of time while they zoned in on the spinning potter’s wheel.
We proudly and excitedly presented the Highline Food Bank with over $10,000! Last year, the representatives of the food bank were in tears over the $4100 we took in. This year, it’s me – I am so moved and the tears are mine.
It was a very long day; a day filled with organizing, talking, eating, serving, cleaning, making bowls, seeing old friends and making new ones.
Thank you, thank you, everyone! Thank you to Gina, Jim, Janet, Esther, Rick, Susan, Missy, Barbara, Judy, JoAnne, Kris, Dana, John, Rochelle, Alisa, Alyce, Fred, Hilva, Maurice, Debra, Rose, Alex, Aislinn, Kendel, Gael, LaVonne, John, Linda, Nancy, George, Dianne, Denise, Kathy, Mary, Gayle, Joan, Victoria and at least a dozen others. We are all blessed.
