At ECU, the bowls are created and donated through the ECU Ceramics Guild, which is sponsoring the project along with ECU Campus Living and Dining Services. Local businesses are providing food and beverages. All funds raised will be donated to the Greenville Food Bank.
“Empty Bowls is a wonderfully unique fundraiser that gives our community a chance to come together and help those in need,” said Sara Kurtz, president of the ECU Ceramics Guild. “Service is a big part of the mission of the Ceramics Guild and we are thrilled to be a part of this event.”
Bowls will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and must be picked up during the event.
Tickets are $15, available through the Mendenhall Student Center ticket office. Guests may park in the lot outside Mendenhall Student Center.
Local sponsors include Peasant’s Pub, Starlight Café, The Skullery, Winslow’s, The Tipsy Teapot, Starbucks, UBE, La Bendicion bakery and ARAMARK.
