We would like to take this time to thank our community for such an overwhelming response to our 17th Anniversary of Empty Bowls!

We would like to take this time to thank everyone who participated in Bethlehem Housing's 50/50 Raffle!
Thank you for sharing our vision to provide stable affordable housing and support services that contribute to a vibrant, caring and inclusive Niagara where everyone has a home.
Congratulations to our winner, D Wielhouwer!

On Wednesday, March 2, 2022 we celebrated our 17th Anniversary of Empty Bowls at The Americana Conference Centre, Niagara Falls. At the event there were 375 guests with 16 different food and beverage vendors. Raising $56,000 in net proceeds to provide supportive transitional and permanent housing for individuals and families across the Niagara Region! 

Thanks to all the support from our sponsors, judges, vendors, potters, donors, attendees and volunteers for continuously making our signature fundraising event a success, year after year!
