Empty Bowls Dinner and Silent Auction

Thursday, November 13, 2014

There are more than 100 families that use the local foodshelf every month. That is why, annually, the Art Colony participates in organizing the Empty Bowls Dinner, a community fundraiser for the local Food Shelf .

Community members make hand-made ceramic bowls to donate for the dinner event. Dinner guests pick out their favorite bowl and fill it with a delicious soup donated by a local restaurant. This is a great way to have a lovely evening with your neighbors and friends while raising money to ensure that others can have a hot meal on a cold fall evening as well.

Dinner Prices
Make-a-Bowl for Empty Bowls | $5 per person | All ages and levels

Every Sunday, Sept. 28 - Oct. 19, 2014: 2 pm

A Silent Auction of local business gift cards accompany the Empty Bowls Dinner. All funds raised through the Silent Auction support the expenses to organize Empty Bowls so all dinner proceeds can go directly to the foodshelf.
