The 17th Annual Empty Bowls Dinner is a simple meal of soup and bread which reminds us that many of our neighbors are struggling to feed their families, and directly supports the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Just Harvest.
Celebrity Bowls Auction Update: The auction started early this year because we have so many great autographed bowls. You can check out the auction, make your bids, and be notified when other people bid. The auction ends on Sunday March 11 at the event. You can bid on your favorites even it you don't attend the Empty Bowls Dinner - read all about it at the celebrity-autographed online auction website.
Larry Berger from Saturday Light Brigade Radio will host this family-friendly event with a strolling magician and children’s activities. We're expecting personality soup-servers and guests from local media. Empty Bowls draws over 1,200 people, and over 15 years has raised more than $438,000 to fight hunger in our communities.
Each ticket holder chooses a ceramic bowl from among over 1,200 on display, hand made by potters, professional and amateur, from all over the area. There is also a silent auction of the "bowls of the ball," and the Celebrity Bowls Auction!
The Food Bank and Just Harvest thank all the many local high schools, community classes, elementary schools, and professional ceramic studios and individuals who contribute to Empty Bowls! If you would like to donate bowls to Empty Bowls, please call Ken Regal at Just Harvest: 412-431-8960.
