Catholic Family Center will host its 13th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser at 5 p.m. Oct. 20 at the Kodak Center for Performing Arts, 200 W. Ridge Road, Rochester, to address hunger and homelessness in the community.
Tickets are $30 until Oct. 12; and $40 at the door. Sponsorship opportunities are available, and proceeds will benefit the Catholic Family Center programs for people in crisis.
Cost includes a handmade ceramic bowl, all-you-can-eat soup and bread, dessert, wine and beer tastings and musical entertainment. The bowls serve as a reminder that empty bowls exist in the community.
More than 500 bowls were donated in 2015 from artists of all ages, and sales and donations exceeded $25,000.
