Empty Bowls

Event Image

For a donation of $14, participants select a distinctive handcrafted bowl that is theirs to keep, and receive a simple meal of soup and bread as a reminder that “someone’s bowl is always empty.” The fundraiser includes a raffle drawing for ceramic art works and a silent auction for select pieces of sculpture and jewelry. All proceeds benefit local food charities.

Sponsored by the Ceramics Club at Oakton, Empty Bowls is a nonprofit, global movement that has raised millions of dollars for food banks, soup kitchens and other meal programs.

For more information, contact emptybowls@oakton.edu or call 847.635.1699.
