November 3rd Requesting bowls for the Bowl of Thanks

The 3rd Bowl of Thanks returns to the Ventura Harbor Village.

Cecile is hoping to gather 200 donated bowls this year. The restaurants are again participating with samples of their specialities for those that purchase the fundraiser bowls for $25 a piece.

November 3rd, 2019 is this year's date. We've managed to donate 100% of the money collected and will continue to do so. This year's recipients will be the Ventura County Humane Society/Ojai and the Ojai Valley Family Shelter. Both were very instrumental in helping the residents and animals in need during the Thomas Fire.

I'd love to get more sponsorships with our guild member's help. If you work with or know of a bank or company that would sponsor this fundraiser, the donated amount will be able to further help these 2 non-profits.

Please donate bowls! Contact Cecile with a pledge of bowls you can promise so we can get to 200. [email protected] 805 754-6380
