Mark your calendars – we will be hosting our annual Empty Bowls event on October 20th from 6 – 9 PM. We would love if you could join us for this special event held right here, in our food bank warehouse.
The night will include fantastic live music, a delicious dinner, a variety of options from the bar, and a very unique silent auction. The meal, a simple yet delicious dinner, is meant to be a modest feast prepared using ingredients similar to that which a client might receive at an emergency food pantry or soup kitchen.
Throughout the evening, guests will have the opportunity to place bids in a silent auction of artisan bowls and artwork donated by local artists and patrons, as well as enjoy the fun and funky music played by the band. Awards will be presented to local businesses, individuals, and volunteers who have demonstrated a true commitment to strengthening our community.
Empty Bowls is Second Harvest’s largest fundraising event. The funds raised during this evening directly support over 200 non-profit agencies in Lehigh, Northampton, Carbon, Monroe, Pike, and Wayne counties. These agencies include emergency pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and child-care and rehabilitation centers. Your attendance will help Second Harvest fill the empty bowls of the 60,000 people it serves each month.
A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available; each includes tickets to the event. Individual tickets can be purchased for $75. All proceeds benefit Second Harvest Food Bank.
