River City Food Bank will hold Empty Bowls, its premier event and fundraiser, this March. Empty Bowls will raise money and awareness for the food bank and its ongoing battle against hunger in Sacramento County.
This event is particularly special because it marks the 10th anniversary of Empty Bowls! At last year’s event, 1,400 attended and raised over $106,000. River City Food Bank hopes that this year will be even more successful: the organization’s goal is to raise $125,000. 96% of the proceeds from the fundraiser directly funds River City Food Bank’s programs serving the community.
Guests of the Empty Bowls fundraiser will enjoy a delicious meal, which includes appetizers, gourmet soup, bread, dessert, and wine, catered by Classique Catering and other Sacramento restaurants. Guests can also take home an attractive bowl handcrafted by local artists and celebrities reminding them of the many in our community who go hungry every day.
Empty Bowls offers an evening dinner on Monday, March 4th and two luncheons on Tuesday, at 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Admission to the dinner is $60, and admission to the luncheon is $30. You can buy tickets online or at The Cathedral Bookshop and The Avid Reader at the Tower. The event will take place at 1400 J Street, which is just a short drive from the Barth Tozer & Daly, LLP office!
