CORA’s 9th Empty Bowls charitable fundraiser will be held on Sunday, February 24th at Galloway Ridge at Fearrington Village in Pittsboro from 5:30pm – 7:30pm. The concept is simple: guests choose a handmade bowl, enjoy delicious restaurant tastings, and go home with their bowl that serves as a reminder that someone’s bowl is always empty and that we need to continue our efforts to end hunger in Chatham County. This popular event is open to the public. CORA encourages all who are interested to attend and purchase a bowl and supper to support a great cause.
CORA is excited that this event has relocated to the new venue at Galloway Ridge. This space will allow for more community members and restaurants to participate. In addition to amazing appetizers, breads, soups, and desserts presented by your favorite local restaurants, wine and beer will also be available for purchase in 2019. Entertainment will also be provided by the Popcorn Blue Band and Bolin Creek String Band.
CORA’s Empty Bowls is one of many such events held nationwide and in at least 14 other countries. The concept, now in its 28th year, was first developed by a teacher and his high school students in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan — conceived as a way to raise money for hunger relief organizations while providing donors with a tangible reminder of the problem of worldwide hunger.
More information about the event, including purchasing tickets online, can be found at www.corafoodpantry.org. Corporate sponsorships opportunities are still available, please contact Rebecca Hankins at 919-491-5896 for more information.
