PHARR – The 12th Annual Empty Bowls Luncheon and Auction is confirmed for Sept. 19, 2017 at the Boggus Ford Events Center.

Empty Bowls will be held from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. There are slots available for local restaurants to promote their gourmet dishes and sponsorship opportunities for businesses as well. Also, companies and individuals are encouraged to donate unique bowls and silent auction items that help promote their products, services or talents. We also have opportunities for Mobile Paint Parties right now.

At this very popular annual event, local restaurants provide a filling lunch for ticket holders while musicians perform throughout the event. Silent auctions and mystery boxes will be back again! One-of-a-kind ceramic bowls are included with each ticket. They stand as a reminder for the hunger faced by many throughout the year in the Rio Grande Valley. Over 800 guests attended last year making this one of the more popular fundraisers so get your tickets soon.
