City Manager Jay Ash, Police Chief Brian Kyes, Fire Chief Robert Better, Centro Latino Executive Director Juan Vega, Community Relations Officer Sammy Mojica, and The Neighborhood Developers Director of Community Engagement Melissa Walsh painted “celebrity bowls” that will be available for sale at the Second Annual Chelsea Empty Bowls event on April 25 at the Williams School.

The Newcomer Program of the Community Services Division organized the bowl-painting workshop for the Chelsea Hunger Network’s fundraising event next month.

The local celebrities listed above joined 300 other community artists building and decorating ceramic bowls.

With the purchase of a ticket ($15 in advance, $18 at the door), participants will choose a bowl, fill it with delicious soup, and stay for a wonderful community gathering.

Police Captain David Batchelor and Detective Scott Conley, two former Chelsea High sports standouts, were set to participate a second celebrity bowl-painting workshop today.

“Through donations and bowl painting, the Chelsea Police Department is thrilled to support the efforts of the Hunger Network in relieving hunger in Chelsea and surrounding communities,” said Claire Contreras, CPD newcomer advocate for immigrants and refugees. “
