CORA’S Empty Bowls

Past one-day event on Mar 19, 2023

Empty Bowls – March 19, 2023

Tickets are Now On Sale!


CORA’s 11th Empty Bowls charitable fundraiser will be held on Sunday, March 19th at Galloway Ridge at Fearrington Village in Pittsboro from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. This year we will have two seatings, a choice of 5:00 pm – 6:25 pm or 6:30 pm – 7:45 pm. The concept is simple:  guests enjoy delicious restaurant tastings and go home with a handmade bowl of their choice to serve as a reminder that someone’s bowl is always empty.  These empty bowls are why CORA needs to continue its efforts to end hunger in Chatham County. 100% of the proceeds go to helping neighbors in need and building a community without hunger!


Artists of all ages, skill levels and mediums will donate hundreds of handmade bowls.


This year’s event will feature:

  • Light appetizers
  • Delicious soups served by the chefs of local restaurants
  • Freshly baked breads
  • Homemade desserts
  • Selection of beverages
  • Cash Bar
  • Live entertainment by the Popcorn Blue Band!
  • 50/50 Raffle
