The 3rd Annual Fort Bend Empty Bowls is set for Friday, March 23 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 – Berryhill Baja Grill, Fish City Grill, Black-eyed Pea, Sweet Tomatoes and Carino’s Italian are just a few of the participating restaurants.
Featured at the event will be hand-painted soup bowls which have been donated by local professional and amateur artists. The evening will also include live entertainment, silent and live auctions, along with a special style show featuring fashions from Tri-City Churches Resale Shop. You don’t want to miss seeing our VIP “super models” in action!
This year, Whole Foods Market of Sugar Land will serve as the “Executive Chef” sponsor for Fort Bend Empty Bowls. One of the ways Whole Foods Market is supporting the event is through Community Giving Day.
