Ring in the New Year with a cozy, community-oriented gathering that benefits a worthy endeavor. On Friday, January 2, Cat Clay (The Hungerford Building, 1115 East Main Street, studio 242) will host its annual "Winter's Warmth: A Soup-er Benefit," held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The event is held in collaboration with the Healthy Sisters Bean and Soup Project, an arm of Catholic Family Center that assists women in recovery as they reenter the workforce by having them do the various aspects involved in running Healthy Sisters.
The popular event is first-come-first-serve. For $20, you get a handmade bowl, your choice of soup or rice mix, and a selection of appetizers and desserts. The bowls are created by Cat Clay founder Sabra Wood and other generous members of the community. Local businesses help provide food and other supplies. Full proceeds benefit Healthy Sisters.
