For almost two decades, members and friends of the Sonoran Arts League have been creating ceramic and glass bowls in support of the Foothills Food Bank Empty Bowls Project held in awareness of World Hunger Day. Each year, on the 3rd Friday in October, the public is invited to join us in Carefree Town Center. Visitors choose from a wide selection of unique handmade bowls for a minimum donation of $15.00 each ~ a simple lunch is served in the bowl. A silent art auction adds another dimension to this event. 100% of the proceeds go to the Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center ~ approximately $20,000 is raised each year. Media Contact: Carole Perry, Empty Bowls Chair (480) 488-6070.
