Last year, Family Promise put on an Empty Bowl event, where potters in the community create (and donate) handmade bowls and people can come and purchase a bowl and get a soup lunch (donated by area restaurants. All proceeds went toward the operating budget for Family Promise, which helps situationally-homeless families get back into jobs and housing.
The event was a huge success, and we are throwing a 2nd annual Empty Bowl event, happening this weekend! (Tickets still available if you’re interested — email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 717-333-6081) Like last year, I created the promotional materials — poster, tickets, flyers, website, etc. Since I created them last year, I was able to just update the dates and send them to the printer, easy enough!
But one thing I didn’t post on the blog about last year’s event was the sponsor/donor recognition placemat that I designed both for last year’s event and this year’s. Instead of creating a program or something similar, I thought it was a clever idea to create placemats for the event to recognize all of the people and businesses who contributed to make the event a success.
Here is a picture of the placemat for this year’s event (a sneak preview!):
