9th Annual Empty Bowls


9th Annual Fort Bend Empty Bowls

Friday, April 6, 2018
6:30 p.m.– 9:30 p.m.
Safari Texas Ranch

Guests of the event will be served a simple meal of soup and bread in recognition and support of our neighbors who don’t have enough to eat.  Fort Bend Empty Bowls will feature hand-painted bowls which have been donated by local professional artist, Albert Goldreich and other amateur artists in the area. These bowls will be available for purchase. There will also be bowl, silent and live auctions, a Wishing Bowl and a Wine Pull and Whiskey Pull!  Commissioner Patterson is serving as the event auctioneer.

Supporting Fort Bend Empty Bowls is a worthwhile investment in the lives of our Fort Bend neighbors who struggle to make ends meet.  Last year’s event raised $129,000 for East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry. Our goal is to raise even more this year to help families in need.  We hope you will consider supporting Fort Bend Empty Bowls. If you have any questions please email stacey@humanneeds.org.
