Soup R Bowl 2016

February 7, 2016

UNM-Valencia Campus

The 7th annual Soup R Bowl, co-sponsored by UNM-Valencia Campus and the Tome Art Gallery, will benefit the Virginia Cassados Clark Memorial Scholarhip. The event which began as a small grassroots fundraiser in the potter studio at the gallery on N.M. 47, moved several years ago to the Tome Dominguez Community Center. This year, it has outgrown the space and will be held in the Student Community Center on the Southside of the UNM-Valencia Campus. Colorful handmade clay bolws, crafted by artists at the co-op gallery, will be available for sale in Fall 2016. There will be a raffle and television coverage of pregame Super Bowl festivities.
