Beholdance Youth Help Fight Hunger

Winston Salem, NC – (March 17, 2009) The Beholdance Winston Salem Chapter joined forces with Hill Arts Magnet School's Art Teacher, Janis Henderson to participate in the Empty Bowls project which benefits the Second Harvest Food Bank.


“The Empty Bowls project is an annual event that benefits the Second Harvest Food Bank. Each school in the WinstonSalem Forsyth County system is asked to donate five, hand crafted clay bowls for the event.  We were very fortunate to have the Beholdance group make the bowls representing Hill Arts Magnet this year. The students made the bowls and Deanna Butcher glazed them all." stated Mrs. Henderson.


Beholdance members, DeAnna Butcher, Lizabeth Arellanes, Juan Campos, Iris Sandoval, Ashonti Carpenter, Devonna Grooms, Brittney Epps and Gwendolyn Wright assisted by Mr. Rick Goodman and Mrs. Janis Henderson.  Together, they put in over 20 hours on the project.


Empty Bowls is Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC's Annual Signature event and is presented by Texas Pete Sauces.  This year the event will be held on April 22 at the Millennium Center in downtown Winston Salem, 101 West Fifth Street from 11am to 2pm.  All proceeds go to Second Harvest for their food distribution program.
