Souper Bowl XIX: Potter puts his spin on Habitat fundraiser

By Jason Lesley
Coastal Observer

Scott Henderson of Hagley Estates has packed up 106 bowls he made for this year’s Georgetown County Habitat for Humanity Souper Bowl and gone to work on bowls for next year.

“When the Souper Bowl started they were asking people to donate bowls. I said, ‘Well, fine I can donate a few bowls. Over the years it’s gotten bigger and bigger,” he said. “Over the last 10 years, I’ve donated at least 100 bowls a year.”

This is the 19th anniversary year of Habitat’s Souper Bowl. There will be 40 soups being served with bread beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Precious Blood of Christ Catholic Church in Pawleys Island. Tickets are $30 in advance and $35 at the door. Ticket outlets include Applewood House of Pancakes, The Chocolate and Coffee House, Greenskeeper Florist, Palmetto Ace Hardware and the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Georgetown. Proceeds from the evening go toward funding a new house for a deserving family.

“I have a lot of time,” Henderson said. He makes the bowls at Coastal Carolina University’s pottery studio. “It keeps me out of the bars,” he said. Henderson’s favorite is the Japanese tea bowl but he makes all kinds and sizes. “I enjoy it,” he said. “It’s for a good cause and people like them.”
