Pensacola, FL (March 6, 2023) – Manna Food Bank’s only major annual fundraiser is less than two weeks away, and discounted pre-sale tickets are available now on the local nonprofit’s website. The Clover Pick A Bowl Fill A Bowl is a unique event with an artsy twist that features the work of local artists and the fare of local vendors. The 2023 event will be held on Friday, March 17, from 6-8 p.m., at the Lou Ross Center of Pensacola State College.
Pre-sale tickets are $50 apiece ($60 day-of) and entitle the event-goer to their choice of a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted clay bowl thrown by a local potter, samples of some of the best soups in town, wine and beer (must be 21 or older), and a few new special features for 2023, as it is Manna’s 40th year in service to the Northwest Florida community and the “Clover” event falls on St. Patrick’s Day. Each ticket sold will provide 30 healthy meals for neighbors in need. All event proceeds support Manna’s work through its emergency food assistance pantry and 17 food security programs with 22 community partners across Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.
The event is made possible by the faculty, students, and friends of the Pensacola State College Visual Arts Department and First City Art Center.
