Every year, Tarrant Area Food Bank’s signature event attracts over 2,000 guests and volunteers who donate their time, money and interests into a fusion of culinary and visual arts.
Empty Bowls Fort Worth allows guests to sample tons of soups and deserts from both high-end and casual dining restaurants and caterers in the Fort Worth area.
Guests can browse unique keepsakes from among 2,500 handcrafted bowls by North Texas artisans and also bid in a Live Auction for Celebrity Bowls, each signed by internationally recognized stars of stage, screen and sports ( Yo-Yo Ma, Harry Winkler “The Fonz,” Arnold Palmer, Tommy Tune, to name a few!)
The event also consists of various raffles with prizes like Mavericks tickets, a 42-inch flat screen TV and a Jason Aldean Concert Experience, complete with tickets, backstage access and a signed guitar!
The event takes place:
Friday, February 20, 2015 from 11 AM to 1 PM
at the Will Rogers Memorial Center:
3401 West Lancaster, Fort Worth, Texas 76107
Tickets must be purchased ahead of time, and start at $50. If you can’t make the event, you can always make a tax deductible donation!
