The Aliso Creek Inn and Golf Course agreed to again host World Hunger Bowl on Nov. 3, a fundraiser sponsored by the city’s Housing and Human Services Committee that benefits the Laguna Canyon homeless shelter.
Homeless advocate Faye Chapman, a member of the committee will chair the event. Since the shelter’s opening in November 2009, 47 homeless people have made the transition to Friendship Shelter, whose mission is to help homeless adults achieve self-sufficiency and towards independent living, according to Chapman.
World Hunger Bowl will showcase artwork created by homeless and professional artisans for silent auction. For the ticket price of $45, patrons enjoy five soup tastings with fixings and dessert donated by local restaurants. “You need a big vision,” Aliso Creek’s General Manager Kurt Bjorkman. “Our goal is for World Hunger Bowl to eventually outgrow its current event space.”
