A Soup(er) Event this Friday, January 8

2016 Bowls

What a wonderful Democrat & Chronicle article on Hungerford neighbor Sabra Wood’s annual event!

Cat Clay studio is hosting Winter Warmth, a Soup(er) Benefit Friday, Jan. 8.

Donating money to good causes is nice, says Cat Clay owner/artist Sabra Wood. “But it’s not very rewarding, so I love getting personally involved.”

That’s why she started Sample Soap, a nonprofit that collects personal care items and distributes them to the neediest groups in Rochester.

It’s also why she launched Winter Warmth, a Soup(er) Benefit. The event is held every January in Wood’s Hungerford Building studio, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to Healthy Sisters Soup & Bean Works, a nonprofit that helps women in recovery.

“Let’s face it, January is a dead month,” she says. “This is a wonderful way to pause, take stock and kick of the New Year.”

For $20, guests get ceramic bowls handcrafted and donated by local artists — including Wood, Richard Aerni, Carolyn Dilcher-Stutz (whose work is pictured) and Juliana Drumheller, among others — packages of soup mix from Healthy Sisters, and appetizers and desserts to graze on.

Winter Warmth runs from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 8, in Suite 242 of the Hungerford Building, 1115 E. Main St. (door 2 by the loading docks). Parking is available at the Hungerford, but don’t park in front of Happy Feet, which is a tow-away zone. Parking also is available at Visions Credit Union across Main Street and at Greenovation.

Last year, 120 bowls were sold at the event, and at least that many will be available this year, Wood says.

There's a sweet story about these bowls for the soup benefit. A friend found them on the side of the road and brought them to me! I ran tests and discovered they take an image very nicely at 1900 degrees. So now they'll make money for Healthy Sisters.

Winter Warmth: A Soup(er) Benefit

The very talented and generous artists over at Crocus Clay Works are teaming up with Healthy Sisters’ Soup & Bean Works to raise money to fund the Sisters’ ongoing program, which has been life-changing for so many women in our area.

    Our sole purpose is to provide a nurturing work environment for women who come from backgrounds of chronic unemployment, poverty or displacement. Healthy Sisters’ Soup & Bean Works is one of only three similar programs in the entire nation. It’s an innovative work experience program where women earn a steady paycheck, develop self-confidence and learn job skills needed to enter or re-enter the workforce.

The program was started in 1996 and to date, more than half of the women participating have found full-time employment or enrolled in school.

Winter Warmth : a Soup(er) Benefit
Friday, January 6th, 5 – 7 pm

Purchase one of 60 hand-made bowls for $20, and enjoy a delicious meal of soup, bread, hot beverage & dessert.

Crocus Clay Works is located at:
1115 East Main St.
Door #2

Rochester, New York

Please join in celebrating the new year with a light supper to benefit the Healthy Sisters’ Soup & Bean Works. They will also have the Healthy Sisters’ dip, soup and new rice mixes for sale. All proceeds from the dinner will be donated to the Soup & Bean Works project

As a bonus, after the benefit, the studios will be open until 9:00 for their First Friday visitors.

Note: Additional parking is available after 6 at the credit union and Vietnam Veterans’ Thrift Store. Please do not park in front of the deli.
