Enjoy a home-cooked meal with family and friends at Arrowmont’s Souper Bowl XIII, November 29, 2016 in the campus dining hall—lunch, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm and dinner, 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm. Participants get to choose an original hand-crafted bowl – yours to keep!
Thirteen years ago, Arrowmont’s faculty and staff wanted to find a way to utilize their skills and abilities to benefit our community. Sharing a meal was the perfect opportunity to fellowship with community members and use craft as a way to support United Way of Sevier County.
One of the joys of Souper Bowl – choosing your bowl! Hand-crafted by local artists, each bowl is unique in design, size, shape and color and a treasure to add to any collection. Every year, bowls are created by Arrowmont staff, instructors and students. This year, Arrowmont volunteers, educational assistants and resident artists have also contributed bowls. “Souper Bowl is designed to benefit our community and extending opportunities for community members to get involved is essential to its success,” Rebecca Buglio, Arrowmont program and studio manager said.
Arrowmont’s staff makes a variety of homemade soups and breads to fill your bowl. This year’s soups include: Patsy’s Potato Leek, Jeff’s Alarm Chili, Julia’s Chicken Noodle, Gumbo and Vegetable. For dessert, enjoy a selection of homemade cookies made by Patsy Henry – Arrowmont’s renowned baker. For generations, Patsy has been providing Arrowmont’s dining hall with desserts, prized by everyone.
Tickets may be purchased in advance at Arrowmont, 865.436.5860 or United Way, 865.430.5727. Tickets are $30 for lunch and $35 for dinner with an additional salad. There is a raffle at lunch and dinner to win art by local artists including Arrowmont instructors. Raffle tickets are $5 to be purchased at the event.
“Join us for this casual relaxed gathering. All are welcome and encouraged to bring family and friends to participate knowing that the cost of your meal is going toward creating meaningful change and improving life for many of our fellow citizens by supporting the United Way of Sevier County,” Bill May, executive director of Arrowmont said.
Arrowmont and United Way partner for this celebration of food, craft and fellowship.
