It’s an event anticipated by many.

On Friday, Jan. 31, the Lake Wales Care Center will hold its Soup-er Bowls for Hunger event from 5:30 to 7 p.m., in which bowls that were painted by local celebrities will be auctioned off, and the proceeds go to the Lake Wales Care Center to fight hunger in Lake Wales.

Due to the weather, the venue is changed to the First Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall at Central Avenue and Third Street, instead of the Youth Coffee House on Park Avenue.

The hand painted bowls are of many varieties, ranging in style from exquisite to simple designs.

Several well known artists participating in the great painting of the bowls as well.

There will be a live band and guest auctioneers at the event.

Soups and special program begin at 6 p.m. The soups were generously provided by local restaurants.
