“Pick a Bowl” for Manna

Pensacola State College and Manna invite you to a fund raiser with an artsy twist.

Come help fight hunger at “Pick a Bowl for Manna” 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 9 at the Anna Lamar Switzer Center for the Visual Arts, Building 15, on the Pensacola campus.

No admission charge.  Donations accepted.

The event features a wide selection of hand-crafted bowls by local artists, including PSC’s Visual Arts faculty and students, for sale and gift wrapping in time for the holidays.  While watching live demonstrations by the area’s finest potters, visitors can shop and enjoy appetizers and beverages.

“Pick a Bowl” also features the Pensacola State College Art Faculty Exhibition and music by Tom Botsford and Infusion.

In addition to “Pick a Bowl”, Pensacola State College is hosting a community-wide food drive to stock the shelves at Manna’s Food Pantry.  Between now and Nov. 9,  8 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, the community may drop-off non-perishable food, such as canned vegetables, chicken, soup, and fruits, as well as peanut butter, oatmeal, cereal, pasta and grits, to the following Pensacola State College locations:
