We hope that the Chelsea community will come and support the Chelsea Community Connection Coailiton’s 3rd Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser today at 5 p.m. at the Williams School.
This event has become one of the city’s most popular fundraisers as volunteers have spent their time hand painting soup bowls that will be on display at the event. Attendees can also enjoy a hearty bowl of soup.
The Coalition does outstanding work providing support to families with children under the age of 18. It needs funds to assist these families and today’s event is the Coalition’s major fundraiser of the year.
For those of us who have lived in this city for many years, we’re pleased that a distinguished community leader such as Carolyn Boumila-Vega is the co-director of the Coalition and the leader of this enjoyable fundraising effort. We have observed Carolyn’s philanthropic efforts through the years and recognize how her energy and drive have helped make our city a better place. Just as her husband, Juan Vega, has worked so hard to make Centro Latino one of the most visible and helpful agencies for residents of our city, Carolyn has also contributed so much of her time to various causes with the goal of helping resident citywide.
We encourage you to get over to the Williams School and join our City Manager Jay Ash and others in helping Carolyn and the Coalition accomplish the organization’s goals.
