Do you have your tickets for Our Home Family Resource Center’s fundraising event, Empty Bowls Dinner and Auction?

If not, we suggest that you act fast, because nearly half of our 200 tickets have already been issued!!

Empty Bowls will be held at American Legion Post 210 in Celina on Saturday, April 14th, doors open at 6:00pm. The proceeds from this event will lend valuable support to Our Home’s programs and projects here in Mercer County.

Guests at the Empty Bowls Dinner & Auction will go home with full bellies, warm hearts, and a pick-your-own, one-of-a-kind souvenir bowl from the 219 bowls painted at Our Home’s “Create A Bowl” event in January. This photo of the window display at Our Home Family Resource Center, 117 W Fayette St, provides just a sampling of the creative designs that will greet you at Empty Bowls Dinner & Auction.

A $25 ticket includes your personal selection of a souvenir bowl and a buffet of savory soups, salad, dessert, and soft drinks. There will be a cash bar available if you prefer adult beverages.

For an additional $10 dinner you can reserve a specific souvenir bowl for Our Home’s Empty Bowls Dinner & Auction – this means that instead of picking-your-own-when-you-arrive from whichever bowls remain available; folks can request the bowl that was painted by their partner, child, friend, grandchild or colleague at the “Create A Bowl” event in January.

The activities at Empty Bowls Dinner & Auction will include silent auction tables, raffles, and door prizes with all proceeds of the evening directed to Our Home’s programs and projects. Emily Geier will provide live music during registration, dining, and bidding and Jonathan Williams will be the emcee for the evening.

The hall rental and cost of food for this event was donated to Our Home by American Legion Post 210. If your business or organization would like to get involved in support of Empty Bowls Mercer County, contact Deb at Our Home Family Resource Center 419-586-4663 or .
