In 1990, an art teacher had an idea to give artists and art students a way to make a personal difference. Empty Bowls, a grass roots movement, was created to help end hunger. Countless Empty Bowls events have been hosted, raising millions of dollars to feed people all over the world.
On Friday, May 12, we have the opportunity to contribute to the effort right here at Hopewell. Admission includes a hand-thrown bowl, a meal, music, conversation and the chance to make a personal difference of our own. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised at the event will be used to combat hunger through the incredible work of the Chester County Food Bank and food-related ministries in South Africa.
Completed bowls have been donated by local ceramic artists including Nell Hazinski, Corey Johnson, Nancy Salamon, Susan O'Hanlon, and Chris Harmon, the West Chester University Ceramics Department and others. Over 100 unfinished bowls have been painted by our own local youth and many community groups.
Please join us as we work together to make a difference in our community and our world. Seats are limited, reserve your tickets today!
