Locally crafted ceramic bowls will be the take-home gift for attendees of the Loving Bowls luncheon next week.

Loving Bowls luncheon to benefit HIV/AIDS Foundation Fund

ANKORS hosts Loving Bowls luncheon on July 10. Tickets are $40 to $50 and can be purchased at the ANKORS office.

ANKORS and the AIDS Walk for Life are raising money for the HIV/AIDS Foundation Fund with their Loving Bowls luncheon on July 10 at the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute (191 Baker Street) from noon to 2 p.m.

Local restaurant Mana’eesh will be catering the event and filling locally crafted ceramic bowls with vegetarian faire. The bowls will be take-home mementos of the day. This event also marks the 20th anniversary of ANKORS.

ANKORS, which stands for AIDS Network Kootenay Outreach and Support Society, was established in 1992 as a non-profit society. It serves those living with and at the greatest risk of acquiring HIV/AIDS and/or Hepatitis C, who have difficulty obtaining services elsewhere.

The foundation fund is used to support HIV positive residents in the West Kootenay/Boundary region to offset medical fees, travel expenses, or to subsidize costs for nutritional supplements, dental work, food security, etc. This year, ANKORS created a similar fund for people living with Hepatitis C. Working with our community on events such as this is an ideal way of teaching community awareness and addressing stigma around blood-borne illnesses.

Limited tickets are a $40-$50 donation and can be purchased at ANKORS, located at 101 Baker Street.
