“Instead of enjoying bottomless bowls of soup by local chefs, choosing from a wide variety of hand-crafted artisan pottery bowls and bidding on a silent auction while surrounded by friends and neighbors in a festive atmosphere,” HCM asks for online donations, according to a news release. Donations will be accepted until Oct. 8.
Financial donations raised will assist HCM in their outreach ministries. And 10% of funds donated will go to APRON, Inc., a local non-profit that lends financial assistance to employees of Louisville’s independent restaurant community.
For every $50 an individual donates, their name is entered into a drawing for a set of hand-crafted pottery bowls or $25 gift cards to local restaurants.
