Join us at our 14th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser
Help end homelessness and reduce the impact of poverty across the Niagara Region by joining us at the 14th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser for Bethlehem!
Guests enjoy samples of gourmet soup prepared by Niagara’s finest chefs, served in one-of-a-kind bowls created by local potters. Included as the perfect complement are local Niagara wine and beer, specialty tea, fresh breads and delicious desserts.
Year after year the event is attended by over 350 guests with more than 20 different food and beverage vendors. A People’s Choice Award and Platinum Ladle Award for best soup is awarded to the winning chefs at the end of the evening.
Guests take their empty bowl home as a reminder of those who struggle to meet basic living needs and secure affordable housing throughout our community. Last year, Empty Bowls raised over $40,000 for programming at Bethlehem Housing and Support Services!
