Welcome to the 15th Anniversary of Empty Bowls
We would like to take this time to thank our community for such an overwhelming response to this year's Empty Bowls! Tickets are now SOLD OUT. We look forward to celebrating this milestone event with all of our guests!
On Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at the Americana Conference Centre in Niagara Falls, Bethlehem Housing and Support Services will be hosting the 15th Anniversary of our Empty Bowls fundraiser. Our new location offers guaranteed ballroom seating for all guests, more capacity for coat check and ample parking.
During the event, guests enjoy samples of gourmet soup prepared by Niagara’s finest chefs and served in one-of-a-kind bowls created by local potters. Included as the perfect complement are Niagara wines, beer, fresh breads and decadent desserts. Guests take home the empty bowl as a continuous reminder of those who struggle to meet basic living needs in our community.
A People’s Choice Award and Platinum Ladle Award for best soup is awarded to the winning chefs at the end of the evening.
Last year, this event was attended by more than 500 people. Together we raised $50,000 in support of Affordable Housing and Support Services in Niagara. We are working hard to make this year’s event an even bigger success and we’re hoping for your support.
