2013 Empty Bowls Event

The 2013 Emp­ty Bowls Vir­ginia Penin­su­la event, our sec­ond fundrais­er, was held at the Hamp­ton His­to­ry Muse­um in Down­town Hamp­ton on March 15, 2013. We again lim­it­ed our tick­et sales to 300, and were delight­ed that they sold out in advance as they did the year before.

Four local orga­ni­za­tions ben­e­fit­ed from our March 2013 event.

  • Food­bank of the Vir­ginia Penin­su­la
  • FISH Emer­gen­cy Ser­vices – Williams­burg
  • LINK of Hamp­ton Roads
  • Grove Chris­tian Out­reach Cen­ter

As a result of our 2013 fundraiser, we donated $10,000 to these four organizations.

 

2012 Empty Bowls Event

Our first Emp­ty Bowls fundrais­er was Feb­ru­ary 10, 2014, at the Penin­su­la Fine Arts Cen­ter in New­port News. We chose to lim­it tick­et sales to 300, and we were sur­prised and delight­ed that they sold out 10 days before the event. It was a grat­i­fy­ing respon­se to our fledg­ling project.

The EBVP com­mit­tee select­ed three local orga­ni­za­tions to ben­e­fit from our efforts.

  • Food­bank of the Vir­ginia Penin­su­la
  • FISH Emer­gen­cy Ser­vices – Williams­burg
  • Lamb House Street Min­istries – Hpt./Npt. News

Our inaugural event in 2012 raised $9000 to donate to these three organizations.

 

2014 Empty Bowls Event

Our third fundrais­er was held on March 19, 2014, at the Hamp­ton His­to­ry Muse­um in Down­town Hamp­ton.

We raised a record $13,000 for our grant recipients at our 2014 event.
