We are so excited to invite you to join us for the 17th anniversary of our signature Bowls of Hope event on Sunday, December 3rd, 2023, 11 am- 2pm at Ed Smith Stadium.

Each year more than 1,500 guests attend one of the community’s largest and most popular family-friendly events where 40 of our community’s finest restaurants and caterers serve delicious soups, bread, desserts, and more. Guests select beautiful handcrafted bowls to keep, all donated by local potters, artists, and students while enjoying a modest meal as a reminder of the empty bowls they help to fill.

Event chairs: Ron and Jo Jadin
