The 18th Annual Empty Bowls Dinner is a simple meal of soup and bread that reminds us that many of our neighbors are struggling to feed their families. Larry Berger from Saturday Light Brigade Radio will host this family-friendly event with strolling musicians, a magician, and children's activities. Local chefs and celebrities serve the soup to over 1200 people, each of whom can take home a handmade ceramic bowl made by a local schoolchild, a professional potter, or another community member. There are even celebrity-autographed bowls, including Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Canned Heat, Franco Harris, Stevie Nicks, Terrance Simien, Jeff Dunham, and Steelers and Penguins -- so far!
2-6 p.m. at Rodef Shalom (at 5th and Morewood in Oakland). $20 includes a bowl to take home. More information, links to auction items, and online ticket sales can be found here.
