Get Your Tickets Now For This Year's Empty Bowls

Posted: Updated:

This year's Empty Bowls will be Tuesday, October 15 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at Midwestern State University.

It is a soup/bread/dessert lunch served by more than 15 area restaurants and food providers. Attendees will enjoy a wonderful meal and leave with a handcrafted souvenir bowl as a constant reminder that someone's bowl is empty and all of us can help!

All proceeds benefit the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.

Live music will add to the festivities, creating an enjoyable and memorable dining event. Entertainment will be provided by Lewis Warren, Jr., a 16-year-old pianist.

Guests will select their favorite bowl from the handmade pottery selection. Your ticket bowl stub MUST be presented in exchange for a bowl. Bowls will be replenished throughout the event, so a great selection will always be available. The selected bowl will be secured in a souvenir goodie bag. Pottery bowls will not be used for tastings. Gallery pieces will be on display and available for purchase.

The People's Choice Award will be awarded for the favorite soup, based on cash donations from event attendees.

Following the event, attendees can proudly display and use their souvenir bowl as a reminder of those who suffer from hunger or struggle to feed their family.

Tickets for the lunch are only sold in advance. They cost $35. Tickets can be purchased in person at United Market Street on Kell Boulevard, United on Jacksboro Highway, the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU, and the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.

Guests are encouraged to park on the east side of Sikes Senter Mall and use the trolley to be shuttled to the museum.

For more information, call the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank at (940) 766-2322 or go to www.emptybowls@emptybowlswf.org.
