ECHO’s Empty Bowls 2017 is April 27! “Last year was wildly successful and everyone loved the bowls and the many knitted and quilted items,” said Robin Smith, fundraising volunteer. “We’re expecting attendance to be around 600 people this year!”
Everyone who buys a ticket receives:
- Soup from 18 local chefs and restaurants;
- Served by local celebrities! (See restaurants and celebrity serves below)
- Bowl made by local potters, students or collected by ECHO volunteers;
- A handcrafted item such as soup bowl cozies, pot holders, trivets, dish towels, and mug rugs. “We also have lots of different items, too. There were beautiful knitted hats, felted iPhone cases, eye glass holders, all kinds of pretty things,” said Smith. “This year a local 4-H group made fleece scarves with pretty bead work.” More than 100 women are creating items for the event.
