Fundraiser for Petaluma People Services Center’s Nutrition Programs – because someone you know missed a meal today.

 Petaluma, California, [November 22, 2015] – Even though our economy is recovering, thousands of people in Sonoma County still struggle in poverty, and many miss a meal every day; 35 million last year. Petaluma People Services Center invites you to a unique event that will raise dollars and awareness. Proceeds will directly support their nutrition programs that bring healthy meals to food insecure individuals, including Petaluma Meals on Wheels, Senior Café, Adult Day Respite, and Petaluma Bounty Farm.

The event is November 27, from 3pm – 6:30pm at Hermann Sons Hall, 860 Western Ave., in Petaluma. Bring your family and friends to enjoy gourmet soup from local chefs, live music from The Abe Train, libations from local purveyors, and see the many bowls for sale. Pottery Bowls created by our community will be for sale throughout the day. There will also be a silent auction of ceramic art donated from Bay Area artists, and fun raffle surprises. That auction closes at 5:30pm.

Get there early to bid on the silent auction items, most of which is ceramic artwork donated from Bay Area ceramic studios and artists including: Heath Ceramics, Diana Crain and Tortuga Workspace for Ceramic Art, Berkeley Potters Guild, Association of Clay and Glass Artists, Sonoma Community Center Pottery Studio, Nichibei Pottery, Peggy Loudon, Kate de Renouard, Justine Tartarsky, Gregory Roberts of Studio C2, and Yero Rudzinskas (just to name a few).
