At this delicious day of  “souper” cuisine, guests choose from a display of hand-crafted ceramic bowls, then sample a delectable soup provided by one of six local chefs.  At the end of the meal, guests may keep their bowls! And 100% of proceeds go to local food programs. 

Tickets are just $35 per person. Last year Empty  Bowls raised more than $13,000. This year, the team – the potters, the chefs, the graphic designers and printers, and the volunteer crew – hopes to raise even more.
