Fourth Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser at Perkins Center
The fourth annual Empty Bowls fundraiser will be held from noon to 3 p.m., December 6, at the Perkins Center for the Arts, in Collingswood. The event connects local artists and restaurateurs with community members to raise awareness and financial support for hunger and arts education.
More than 600 bowls of all shapes, sizes and colors have been created for this year’s event by Perkins Center’s artists and volunteers. Attendees can purchase a bowl and fill it with samples of cuisine from restaurants in the greater Collingswood area. Funds raised will be donated to the Food Bank and to support the scholarship fund at the Perkins Center.
“Each holiday season we look forward to this opportunity to give back and to reach out to our community in a meaningful way,” contends Alan Willoughby, executive director of the Perkins Center for the Arts. “This fundraiser reinforces our shared commitment to serve our community, help alleviate a desperate need and improve arts education in South Jersey.”
