What could be better than a nice big bowl of dessert? How about getting to keep the bowl?  And helping out a couple of great causes while you are at it?

Washingtonville High School's National Art Honor Society will be hosting its Empty Bowls Dessert Social and Fundraiser this Saturday, April 28, from 1 pm - 3:30 pm at the high school at 54 West Main Street. The dessert social will raise money for The Food Bank of the Hudson Valley and The Country Kids Food Pantry.

Here's how the Empty Bowls Fundraiser works. Guests pay a suggested donation of $10 to $20 for a handcrafted ceramic bowl, or $5 for handmade mug or for a disposable bowl. Then they enjoy desserts like sundaes, fruit salads, and more, all donated by Washingtonville community members.
