It has to be one of the most poetic of fundraisers. Cone 10 Studios, Charleston's collection of talented potters, will serve up hearty soup in handcrafted bowls as a way to raise money for Crisis Ministries, an organization that feeds and shelters 1,600 needy people a year.
In last year's inaugural event, Cone 10 raised nearly $4,000 and this year, co-owner Anne John hopes to raise even more. To that end, chef Celia Cerasoli and clay artist Fiorenzo Berardozzi will make a simple soup and some fresh bread, while 25 other potters will donate handcrafted bowls to be used for the meal. Guests get to keep the bowl with their $42 donation.
The dinner will be held Friday, Feb. 21, 6-8 p.m. at the Cone 10 Studios at 1080 Morrison Dr. Purchase tickets by calling (843) 853-3345. Space is limited so make haste.
