Bowls For Hope Event Seeks Charity to Benefit

Nov. 5, 2010--Earlier this year, area restaurants, businesses, local artists, musicians and educators gathered at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls River Falls for the inaugural Bowls of Hope event. The event raised $5,000 in donations for local charity Our Neighbors’ Place, and drew more than 200 attendees.

With a slightly altered name, the next Bowls For Hope will take place March 22, 2011, and the planning committee is in the process of selecting the charity that will benefit from the 2011 event.

Interested nonprofit organization in the St. Croix Valley should submit their request to Mary Van Galen via email at mary.vangalen@uwrf.edu no later than Dec. 1. The request should be no longer than one page in length and should include the following information: sponsoring organization; contact name, title, e-mail, and phone; the organization’s mission statement; services currently provided; current funding sources; amount requested; and a specific plan for how funds would be utilized.

Submissions should also include information on the organization’s ability to utilize funds at a partial funding level, a specific plan for how the funds would be utilized, and additional services that funds from this event would allow the organization to provide that it does not currently offer.

The planning committee will notify all applicants of the charity selected by Dec. 15. For more information, visit the event's website at http://www.uwrf.edu/bowlsforhope or contact Jerry Waller, UWRF’s director of Dining Services, at jerry.j.waller@uwrf.edu or call 715-425-4444.
