Fill the Pool Bowl by Bowl Dinner and Auction

Mission Valley Aquatics is looking for volunteers to host “Paint Me for the Pool” parties.

The hand-painted bowls will be used to serve up some of our area’s finest soups at the MVA Auction & Soup Dinner on Nov. 10 at the new aquatic center.

Entry to the dinner and auction costs $10 ($5 for children 10 and under), but each participant earns a FREE ticket to the auction.

If you’re interested in hosting a party or participating by painting a bowl for MVA, contact us by phone (406-883-4567) or email to
