Tempe Empty Bowls 12th Annual Event
February 22 @ 11:00 am - February 23 @ 2:00 pm
Empty Bowls is a volunteer initiative of interested citizens that brings together all facets of the community to raise money for and awareness of hunger issues.
The 2013 Tempe Empty Bowls (www.tempeemptybowls.org) event will be held two days. Friday, February 22nd: 6th Street Park (just south of City Hall in Downtown Tempe), and Saturday, February 23rd: Community Center Courtyard, 3500 S. Rural Rd. (courtyard is nestled between Tempe Public Library and Vihel Center buildings), SW Corner of Rural/Southern. Both days are from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public!
Hand-crafted bowls, planter pots, mugs, necklaces, platters and vases will be available for purchase. All pieces are made by potters at the City of Tempe Ceramics Program, local artists, and children ranging from elementary to high school students. With the purchase of a bowl, Whole Foods Market will offer a simple meal of soup and bread (symbolic of the caloric intake that must sustain many in the world for an entire day).
Friday’s entertainment will include music from Walt Richardson, and Saturday from Randy Olson and Friends.
The Empty Bowls Committee would like to thank the following organizations for their generous support of this event: Whole Foods Market, The City of Tempe, Marjon Ceramics, Emerson, Laguna Clay Company, Tempe Elementary School District, Tempe Union High School District, Kyrene School District, Charging Life, Randy Olson & Friends, and Walt Richardson.
