Empty Bowls tickets go on sale


Tickets are on sale now for the 2012 Empty Bowls Community Event. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, November 11, at Central Oregon Community College’s Campus Center located at 2600 College Way in Bend.

This annual fundraiser is an internationally recognized event designed to raise awareness about hunger issues.

Tickets can be purchased online at Early bird ticket prices (Adult $23, Children $13) are available for those who sign up for tickets before September 14th. Starting September 15th, ticket prices increase to Adult $25 and Children $15. Two seatings will be held at 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

“Last year our attendance for the Empty Bowls event was great,” commented Carolyn Tillia Empty Bowls Event Coordinator. “To streamline services on the day of Empty Bowls we have moved all of our tickets sales online so people can reserve their seat before the event starts.”

Attendees may choose from over 850 hand crafted bowls created by local potters that donated their time and talents for the event. Bowls are then filled with delicious gourmet soup provided by Chef Julian Darwin of the Cascade Culinary Institute. During the meal attendees will also enjoy locally crafted bread, desserts and music from area musicians.

“We have enjoyed tremendous community support for Empty Bowls since its inception eleven years ago,” remarks Sharon Miller, Executive Director of NeighborImpact. “This is truly a community supported event. We could not host it without the support of local artisans and professionals who make Central Oregon’s Empty Bowls outstanding and unique.”
