Burnaby Empty Bowls and Get Rooted!

Burnaby Empty Bowls

Date: Thursday, April 23, from 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Location: Hilton Vancouver Metrotown, Crystal Ballroom (6083 McKay Avenue / Burnaby - map)
Cost: $65.00

The Empty Bowls Project was launched in 1999 to raise awareness about the existence of hunger and poverty in Burnaby.

Every two years, the Project hosts a fundraising gala. Funds raised go to support local programs for children, youth, and families in Burnaby that provide nutritious food and help to build skills that encourage healthy lifestyles

The reception-style gala will include food prepared by local chefs, jazz music, and a silent auction, and each guest will also go home with a handcrafted ceramic bowl made by Lower Mainland potters.
