DERRY — Soup's on once again for the annual Potter's Bowl fundraiser to benefit Community Caregivers of Greater Derry.

This year's event — the 14th annual — is set for Saturday, Feb. 2, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Pinkerton Academy's freshman cafeteria.

For a $40 ticket, patrons can choose a handcrafted pottery bowl, created and donated by New Hampshire artisans.

For children under 12, admission is $10.

There will be more than a dozen types of soups donated from area restaurants along with breads, desserts and beverages. Patrons can continue to fill their bowls as often as they'd like throughout the evening and then take their bowl home.

In addition to soup, the night features a pottery wheel demonstration, 50/50 raffle, and a silent auction with items donated by artisans all over New England including oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, photography, jewelry, wooden crafts and much more.

There will be musical entertainment and the Red Star Twirlers will be helping serve throughout the night.

The Potter's Bowl is a major fundraiser for the Caregivers, working in this area through a network of volunteers to support the elderly and disabled.

The organization's mission is to help clients remain independent and safe in their homes as volunteers step in to help with transportation, shopping, light cleaning and other tasks.

Caregivers also has a Loaner's Closet at its Londonderry location, with many items available to loan out including wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, and other items for medical or healthcare needs. Caregivers celebrates 31 years of service in 2019.

Tickets for the Potter's Bowl are now on sale and are available by calling Caregivers at 432-0877, ext. 1, or stop by the office in Londonderry at 1B Commons Drive, Unit 10.
