'Pottery for Prevention' benefits Turningpoint

Pottery for Prevention, a benefit in support of Turningpoint for Victims of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence, will be held Saturday at The Phipps Center for the Arts from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

The event began four years ago and has grown every year since its beginning at Seasons on St. Croix in downtown Hudson. Because of that success, the event has been moved to The Phipps to provide for a larger venue.

The event will feature art, music, food and beverages, all provided by local restaurants, breweries, artists and private donors.

Dozens of unique, original pieces of pottery will be part of a silent auction, and the event will feature a live auction as well. The live auction prizes include a gift card package for a Hudson "Night Out," free nachos for life at Agave Kitchen, a Camp St. Croix Summer Camp experience, a handmade children's picnic table, a golf package from Clifton Hollow Golf Course and artwork/framing from Kelley Gallery among other things.

The event will feature a wine selection donated by Spirit Seller and distributors, as well as locally brewed American Sky Beer. Among the local establishments contributing food are Barker's/San Pedro, The Postmark Grille, Shanghai Bistro, Urban Olive and Vine, Hudson Bagel Shop, Bayport BBQ, River Valley Catering, Green Mill and Knoke's. Hudson Flower shop will provide floral arrangement for the event as well.

Tickets are $35. Those planning to attend should RSVP to or register on Facebook, or print a registration form from this website Turningpoint.

Tickets can also be purchased at the door the day of the event.
