2013 Empty Bowls Event

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

The EBVP committee had selected four local organizations to receive the funds raised by our March 2013 event:

Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula

FISH Emergency Services – Williamsburg

LINK of Hampton Roads

Grove Christian Outreach Center

Our 2013 fundraiser resulted in $10,000 that was donated to these four organizations.

2012 Empty Bowls Event

The 2012 Empty Bowls Virginia Peninsula event was our first fundraiser. It was held at Peninsula Fine Arts Center in Newport News on February 10, 2012. We limited our ticket sales to 300, and were surprised and delighted that they were sold out 10 days before the event. It was a gratifying response to our fledgling project.

The EBVP committee had selected three local organizations to receive the funds raised by our Feb. 2012 event:

Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula

FISH Emergency Services – Williamsburg

Lamb House Street Ministries – Hpt./Npt. News

Our 2012 fundraiser resulted in $9000 that was donated to these three organizations.
