Rock 95 has a post on their website this morning explaining this great event:
“Three Transitional Housing providers in Simcoe County have teamed up to host our third annual Bowls for Beds fundraising weekend. Samaritan House Barrie, along with Couchiching Jubilee House and Biminaawzogin Regional Aboriginal Women’s Circle (BRAWC). In Orillia invite you to join us at this event. Our not for profit agencies provide housing and support for victims of domestic violence, homeless and at risk homeless individuals to re-establish their lives through individualized programs designed to rebuild safety, emotional, financial, social stability as well as independence self-sustainability in the lives of those we support. Our Bowls for beds fundraiser will help raise funds needed to sustain and deliver our programs and help keep people safe and housed.
With Lead Sponsors Meridian Credit Union in Barrie and Orillia as well as Giant Tiger in Orillia, our Bowls for beds fundraiser is an exciting event where for you can select a uniquely hand painted clay bowl painted by local children and use it to sample from an array of delectable soups prepared and served from local restauranteurs. It will be a fun afternoon with entertainment, guest speakers, raffles and the bowl is yours to keep.
