The McNeese State University Department of Visual Arts is hosting a Gumbowl fundraiser from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday, Feb. 23, in the Shearman Fine Arts Annex Atrium.

There will be no pre-sale. All tickets will be made available at the time of the event on a first-come, first-served basis.  

Ticket holders can choose between chicken and sausage gumbo or seafood gumbo and select a handmade ceramic bowl from among 500 pieces crafted by ceramics students and faculty members. Co-sponsors for this event are Mari and James Bittner, owners of Brick House Catering and Events.
