Join us at this unique fundraising event, Empty Bowls McKinney. We are returning for the 7th year to raise funds to help end hunger in our area. Last year we raised over $60,000!

This unique annual event begins with a showcase of over 1,000 one-of-a-kind bowls handcrafted by professional and student artists. For the $25 price of admission, guests come to share a sampling of gourmet soups, breads, and sweets that have been lovingly prepared by chefs from local restaurants. Included in the price of admission, guests take home one of these empty handcrafted bowls as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the local community and of the children and adults who go to sleep hungry. And the end result: much needed funds that support hunger initiatives at Community Lifeline Center. Last year we were able to give the CLC a check for $30,000 to feed and care for our neighbors in need in North Texas.

Plan on attending this fun and festive event to be held Thursday, May 3rd from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the McKinney Performing Arts Center located at 111 Tennessee St. in McKinney. Admission is $25.00 per person, and children under 10 are free. Admission includes specialty soups and breads from local restaurants and a one-of-a-kind handcrafted bowl. Entertainment will be provided by the E Flat Porch Band.
