Weekend Food Program Fundraiser
Greene County Empty Bowls
The Waynesburg University Bonner Scholars have presented the Greene County Empty Bowls event for the past four years . This year it will be held on April 8, 2018, 11am to 2pm at the National Guard Readiness Center.
All proceeds benefit the Greene County Weekend Food Program (See Weekend Food Program.)
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
Each attendee receives unlimited soup and bread, and a handmade ceramic bowl to take home. (Children 12 and under eat free but do not receive a ceramic bowl.)
Tickets can be purchased in advance at various locations in town, e.g., the Community Foundation of Greene County, and the University Center for Service Learning by check or cash. Donations can also be made if you cannot attend the event.
All checks should be made out to: “Community Foundation of Greene County” with “Empty Bowls Tickets” on the memo line if you’ll be attending the event or “Empty Bowls Donation” if you can’t attend the event.
Last year Empty Bowls Greene County raised more than $6000 for the Weekend Food Program.
The five school districts need about $25,000 annually to serve about 140 children! Your support helps ensure funds are available to continue the program.
