On February 3, 2012, Community Caregivers hosted their seventh annual Potter’s Bowl fundraiser from 5:00 PM -8:00 PM. For a $30 ticket, patrons were able to pick a handcrafted pottery bowl, their favorite soup, bread and other goodies, all donated by local New Hampshire artists. There were over a dozen different types of soup donated from local restaurants around the Derry area as well as breads, desserts, and other goodies to enjoy. The world famous Red Star Twirlers served at the event. There was also musical entertainment and a silent auction with items donated from other New England artists and craftsmen. Auction items included oil paintings, acrylic paintings, matted photography, watercolor, and handcrafted jewelry, just to name a few! The value of all art donated amounted to over $5,000.
The event was held at “Promises to Keep”, Rt.28, Derry, NH. It was an artistic event full of fun and lots of great food to help support a local nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the elderly and disabled in our area.
