On Sunday, October 15, friends of Family Promise of the Verdugos came out in full force for our 7th Annual Empty Bowl Fundraiser. The event took place at a new venue this year, St. Charles Borromeo Church, North Hollywood. The event brought together over 400 individuals from our partnering congregations and corporate sponsors.
Thank you to all our attendees, restaurant donors, sponsors, and Empty Bowl committee for putting together the most successful Empty Bowl in our history. We raised over $27,000, an amount that will help our organization continue to provide the important services needed to house homeless families.
