Empty Bowls VI – Pomfret 2013

Empty Bowls is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 7th, from 4-7pm, at the Pomfret Town Hall.

We hope you’ll join us for an evening of community and fundraising to help end hunger.

This year, BRING YOUR OWN empty bowl and we’ll fill it with delicious soup for $5 or choose from a limited number of pottery bowls that will be for sale for $10; or devour your soup from a bread bowl!

Bid on stunning silent auction bowls by local artists.

Enjoy your meal while being entertained with live music.

As always, 100% of the proceeds go to the hunger relief organization of your choice.

Empty Bowls VI is sponsored by The Pomfret Potters Group with help from North Pomfret Congregational church and Purple Crayon / Artistree.

Please call Judi Greene (457-9035) with any questions.
