Soup Bowl Supper tickets now on sale
Tickets for the fifth annual Soup Bowl Supper sponsored by the Steamboat Clay Artisans are on sale at All That Jazz. The cost is $18 in advance ($20 at door) and entitles the ticket-holder to a handmade ceramic bowl created by a local clay artist, soup donated by local restaurants, bread, beverage, dessert, and a chance at a door prize.

The supper is Oct. 4 at the Steamboat Springs Community Center. There are 5:30 and 7 p.m. seatings. Each seating also will feature a silent auction of locally made pottery.
In addition to local clay artists who have created 300 bowls and auction items for the event, local businesses and restaurants have donated soups, breads, desserts, beverages and other supplies and services.
During the four years of the event, the Steamboat Clay Artisans has raised $24,893 for local nonprofit organizations. For more information about the Soup Bowl Supper, call Deb Babcock at 846-9349.
