A wonderful charity event called the World Hunger Bowl was held last Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Aliso Creek Inn and Golf Course in Laguna Beach.
The World Hunger Bowl is the brainchild of Laguna Beach resident and champion for the homeless, Faye Chapman.
Approximately 200 Laguna Beach residents and outsiders attended this annual event, which raises money for the homeless of Laguna Beach through a silent auction of bowls created in the past year by world renowned artists, local artists and volunteers.
Several of the bowls were truly one-of-a-kind works of art created by famous artists such as Wyland, Marlo Bartels and Guionette Wise. Consequently, the bidding became quite heated and competitive. This charitable spirit resulted in increased donations of which nearly 100% will be given to the Laguna Relief and Resource Center to help the homeless.
Several local restaurants including K’ya, Sapphire, Sundried Tomato, French 75, Mozambique, and the Aliso Creek Inn were kind enough to donate their time and effort by making exotic soup, which they served up hot to the hungry bidders.
Auntie Mary’s Sweetery made the most scrumptious cupcakes.
However, our hats must be taken off and our applause must be directed to Faye Chapman who worked tirelessly throughout the year to make this event happen.
Nice job Faye! I hope the World Hunger Bowl will continue well into the future!
