The 4th Annual Fort Bend Empty Bowls is set for Friday, April 5, from 6:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m. at Safari Texas Ranch. Fort Bend Empty Bowls is the single largest fundraising event benefiting East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry. Guests will be served a simple meal of soup and bread as a reminder of families in Fort Bend County who don’t have enough food to eat. Although the meal may be “simple” the soup will be delicious! Local restaurants will be providing the tasty soups.
Featured at the event will be hand-painted soup bowls which have been donated by local professionals and amateur artists. These bowls will be available for purchase to help raise funds to help families in need in our community. The evening will include live entertainment, provided by the Sugar Land Sweet Adeline’s and the Salvation Army Harbor Light Choir. There will also be silent and live auctions, sure to have something for everyone. Commissioner James Patterson is serving as the event auctioneer.
Tickets for Fort Bend Empty Bowls are only $25 per person and may be purchased at East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry, or online at www.HumanNeeds.org. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. If you would like to donate to the silent or live auction, or would like more information about Fort Bend Empty Bowls contact Connie Esposito at Connie@HumanNeeds.org or call 281.261.1006.
