Thank you to everyone who participated in the eighth annual Empty Bowls Event on Thursday November 16, 2017.

Please check this spot the last week of August for ticket information for the 2018 Empty Bowls event.

Empty Bowls events are held by potters in communities throughout North America with the objective to raise funds and awareness for local charities that work to relieve hunger and homelessness. During the event, patrons select a handmade bowl from the hundreds on display and local chefs and bakers in attendance serve a ladle of their gourmet soup and artisan bread. The handmade bowl guests take home with them serves as a gentle reminder that not everyone has a full bowl every day.

All funds raised at our event have been divided equally and donated to Aurora's Welcoming Arms and Inn From the Cold, Newmarket. Cumulatively since our first event in 2010, Pine Tree Potters' Guild has raised over $134,700 for local charities.

We wish to thank our sponsers for the 2107 Empty Bowls event:
