UE’s Annual Chili Bowl Sale Planned for October 26
Posted: Tuesday, October 17, 2017
The University of Evansville’s annual Chili Bowl Sale is planned for October 26 from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. The event, which is sponsored by the UE Clay Club, will be set up in the area between Hyde and Sampson Halls on UE’s campus. The rain location for the event is Eykamp Hall, Room 253, Ridgway University Center.
Chartwells, the new food service provider at UE, will provide the chili this year.
For $10, customers can buy a one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl and fill it with chili. Styrofoam containers will be available for those who prefer not to put chili in their newly purchased bowls.
Smaller bowls priced at $5 and larger bowls ranging from $15-$50 will also be for sale at the event. There will be a few bowls sold at a Silent Auction as well, ranging in value from $60-$100.
The bowls are being made this year by members of the Clay Club and other UE students, faculty members, alumni, and members of the community.
Part of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to At the Cross Mission in Mount Vernon, Indiana, which is a meal kitchen for the less fortunate. The rest will go to the Clay Club to be used to fund attendance at conferences, visiting artists, and studio/gallery visits.
