Empty Bowls – is an international project to fight hunger. The basic idea for Empty Bowls is simple. Participants paint ceramic bowls which are then donated to the “Empty Bowls” Dinner/Fundraising event, where they serve a simple meal of soup and bread, donated by local restaurants. Guests choose a bowl to use that night and to keep as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in the world. All money raised at the EMPTY BOWLS event stays right here in the Magic Valley.
So, how can you get involved? Paint a bowl to donate to the EMPTY BOWLS DINNER on Fat Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at the Turf Club. Simply stop in at Hands On and choose a bowl. Bowls range from $8-$12. Hands On will waive the studio and glazing fees for anyone who paints a bowl to donate to this event.
The Event – at the Turf Club February 17, 2015, from 6:00pm to 10:00pm
Dinner tickets are available for $20 at Hands On and South Central Community Action Partnership or can be purchased at the door the night of the event. Your ticket will get you into the event, entered into a drawing for a door prize, dinner and your choice of bowl that has been painted by the community.
Doors open at 5:00pm. Dinner will be from 6:00 to 8:00pm. The band UNDRDoG will play from 7:00 to 10:00pm.
The Fat Tuesday Empty Bowls Dinner will feature a variety of gourmet soup and bread from local restaurants and bakeries. Desserts will be available for purchase at the Bake Sale.
