Happy New Year! 2021 marks a significant year for our Empty Bowls Festival in many ways– first of all its our 25th anniversary! It is also a year impacted by the pandemic and needed support for our Community Cupboard more than ever. Sadly for the first time ever we will not be able to gather together in January with our community to paint bowls during Glazing Days.
Without the income from the bowl painting this year we are hoping to increase donations and sponsorships. As an incentive for individual donations we will be offering 25 bowls with glaze kits to community members, to be selected by a drawing in March. We are also grateful to continue our annual Auction of Artist Bowls this spring with 25 artist bowls.
Would you be willing to sponsor or co-sponsor a community bowl with glaze kit or an artist bowl this year? Our plan is to feature these bowls through promotions and recognize the sponsors at the same time. A suggested sponsorship of $250 per bowl is our ask. However ANY sponsorship amount is gratefully accepted. We are attempting to support the many people that are suffering during this challenging time.
If you are interested in sponsorship or have any questions please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 509-670-9300. Payment can be sent directly to Upper Valley Mend at PO Box 772, Leavenworth, WA 98826 or online at www.uvemptybowls.org. Be sure to also contact me directly so that we can recognize your sponsorship.
Thanks for your consideration!
