Thank You for Supporting our 12th Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser
Thank you everyone for supporting the 12th Annual Empty Bowls on March 8, 2017! The success of the event would not be possible without all of the support from our attendees, sponsors, judges, potters, vendors, and volunteers.
The event was a wonderful success, raising more than $30,000 for programs and services at Bethlehem Housing and Support Services!
At the event, Niagara’s finest chefs prepare and serve their favourite soup in one-of-a-kind bowls created by local potters. Included as the perfect complement are Niagara wines, specialty beverages, and delicious sweets. At our 2017 event we had over 350 guests and 22 different food and beverage vendors.
