Auburn Parks and Recreation’s Dean Road Ceramics Studio and Opelika Parks and Recreation’s Denson Drive Recreation Center will host the Annual Empty Bowls event on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center. A minimum donation of $10/person to the Food Bank of East Alabama entitles each ticket holder to their choice of a handmade bowl created by studio potters and a selection of soup, chili, and bread donated by local restaurants. Advance ticket purchases are encouraged. Empty Bowls is a fundraiser created to raise awareness for hunger issues and help feed the hungry in our community. Potters from the Auburn and Opelika ceramics studios spend months creating hundreds of handcrafted bowls from which patrons can choose as a keepsake and a reminder of those who face hunger every day. For more information, visit or contact Auburn Parks and Recreation at 334-501-2930.
