 Empty Bowls Charity Dinner Combatting Local Hunger

Date Night Idea: 22nd Annual Empty Bowls Dinner

The Ceramic Designers Association (CDA) in partnership with Virginia Wesleyan University hosts the Empty Bowls 2020 Dinner.

Where: Jane P. Batten Student Center building on the Virginia Wesleyan University campus

When: Friday, March 13th, 2020 from 5:30-8:30pm 

Cost: Tickets $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Purchase tickets here.

Description: Empty Bowls is a project organized by the CDA locally in Hampton Roads and is celebrating its 22nd year. In 1990 a high school teacher in Michigan and his students found a way to raise funds to support a local food drive that evolved into an international effort to feed the hungry through fundraisers raising millions around the world. Some Empty Bowls events started meagerly with potter/artisans creating the bowls and bringing gallons of soup each to feed the ticket holders!
