Empty Bowl 2018

EMPTY BOWL 2018 – Sunday, October 21, 2018 – 11:30am to 2:30pm
St. Charles-Boromeo Church in North Hollywood, CA

Empty Bowl started as an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. FP-Verdugos hosted the fundraiser to continue providing safe shelter, meals and support to homeless families.

The basic premise is simple: independent potters, arts associations and other groups within the community create handcrafted ceramic bowls. Guests who purchase Adult tickets to a simple meal of soup, bread and dessert donated by area restaurants and they take their selected bowl home with them as a symbol of the hunger and uncertainty homeless families face daily.

Consider attending the event or being an event sponsor.
