Self Help, Inc. is hosting the Empty Bowls Project Luncheon and Silent Auction 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, March 5 at the Betty Ehart Senior Center.
For $15 participants receive a ceramic bowl, soup, bread, dessert and a beverage. The Craig Martin Experience will provide musical entertainment for the diners.
“The funds raised benefit community members both in Los Alamos and in neighboring counties by helping with basic needs such as food and heat, and by assisting people facing homelessness,” said Self Help Executive Director Ellen Morris Bond.
The silent auction is being created and managed by Catherine Richmond, owner of Seeking Chameleon, in White Rock. In addition to silent auction items and themed baskets, there will be a kids table with more than 20 items for the younger set to bid on. There truly is something for everyone at this family friendly, community event.
Local restaurants are donating soups, breads, and beverages for the meal. Soups will be identified as gluten-free, vegetarian and dairy-free for those with food allergies. Cookies and desserts are donated by local groups and individuals.
“This year the Empty Bowls Project is more than ever a community event created by many artists, businesses, and event organizers,” Morris Bond said. “I would like to thank the donors, Board Members of Self Help, Inc. and event organizers for the many hours they have given.”
The event is underwritten by LANB, Zia Credit Union, Thrivent Care in Communities, and Los Alamos MainStreet.
