YWCA’s 2021 Bowls of Caring fundraiser is underway!
If you are looking for something creative to do this year, you will want to attend one of the “open painting parties” between January and April.
Each party consists of a YWCA representative bringing a selection of ceramics and paints to a group of individuals throughout the community to paint. After the bowl, mug, or spoon rests are painted, they are taken back to the YWCA where they will be dipped in a glaze and then properly fired in a kiln on site. You will have your finished product back within two weeks of painting!
Following the painting parties, there will be a 50/50 raffle and an auction full of baskets and “date-night” packages.
Due to current guidelines, this year’s auction events will be held online.
There is no cost to attend or host a bowl painting party but it does cost $15 per item that you choose to paint. If you are unable to attend one of the open parties, you can call (307) 352-6635 to book your own private party! YWCA is following current COVID mandates so there will be a minimum number of individuals allowed per party depending on the location of the party.
The profits brought in from the fundraiser benefit all of Sweetwater County through the services offered at YWCA. The services provided to the community include high quality child care, support and resources for victims of family violence, and free financial empowerment classes- a program offering basic financial education to anyone in the community.
YWCA is now accepting donations for the auction. We would like to emphasize that any donation, large or small is welcomed and appreciated.
