SHARE the Project, Inc. first annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser
Hastings Waterfront | Come help raise funds for the local community outreach not-for-profit organization, known to most as Project SHARE. The basic premise is simple, local high schoolers and craftspeople have donated handmade ceramic bowls and each guest is asked to keep a bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised will go directly to SHARE the Project so they can continue to help end hunger and break social barriers. Local vendors have also donated soup for all to sample. As well, there will be a clay project for kids to do and a local band to enjoy.  *Rain date: May 14th

As such, your duties would include meeting and greeting our visitors, guiding them through the Mansion, telling them the story of the property and people who lived here and leaving them with an overall sense of having had a wonderful and positive experience. If this is something you think you might enjoy please contact me via e-mail and we can make an appointment to meet. Ira Stein, Curator of Education
