POTTSTOWN — ArtFusion’s popular Soup Bowl fundraiser returns for a third year this Saturday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. The Soup Bowl fundraiser will take place at 254 E. High St. in the ArtFusion gallery. This year’s event will take over the entire building with different soups set up on two floors with more seating to accommodate a lot more soup lovers.

Guests will be able to try an amazing variety of home-cooked soups created by local volunteer chefs and donated by local restaurants. Lunch will also include bread, beverages and homemade desserts. As a thank you for supporting the fundraiser, each guest will take home a handcrafted ceramic bowl, created by volunteers from the community throughout the previous year.

Each bowl is an artistic collaboration: one volunteer created the bowl from clay and another added the colorful decorations. Guest artists included Girl Scout troops, high school students, volunteers from local businesses, members of the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program and more.
