Empty Bowl 2021 will take place on Sunday, October 24 between 11:30am to 2:30pm. Stop by for a bowl of soup, participate in the silent auction, support local craft vendors, and hear about the families with children that you have positively impacted because of your support to the Family Promise mission. 

** Due to many of our ceramic bowl donors not being fully operational, due to the pandemic, we have decided to provide our guests a commemorative Family Promise oven mitt. Oven mitts will be provided in various colors for your choosing.  Some of our ceramic bowl donors have donated bowls; we will include those beautiful handmade bowls in this years opportunity drawing.
