The 10th anniversary of Amherst Survival Center's Empty Bowls event is coming up in just a few short weeks! On Monday, March 19, 2018, the center will be aiming to raise upwards of $20,000 for our neighbors in need with the help of ticket buyers and local sponsors. Empty Bowls is an effort to support the folks in our area who need help with the basic essentials that so many of us are fortunate to have in abundance, such as food, water, and cold-weather clothing. However, the Amherst Survival Center moves even a step beyond just the basic necessities of life, and provides services such as job fairs, job skills classes, exercise sessions, and community support groups.
With a $40 ticket purchase you will be welcomed to The Pub in Amherst for a delicious soup, chili, or stew dinner donated by local restaurants such as Johnny's Tavern, Black Sheep and Osteria Vespa. In addition to the soup, salad, and bread, $40 ticket buyers will leave the event with a beautiful, locally crafted, pottery bowl donated by Pioneer Valley artists. One notable artist to mention is Tiffany Hilton, who this year will be donating 150 hand thrown clay bowls to this worthy cause. It should be noted that there are also $30 tickets available, however these discounted tickets do not come with a locally crafted bowl.
