The tenth annual Empty Bowls event to benefit the PATH Center is planned for Thursday, Feb. 18, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at Knights of Columbus Hall, 111 Elliott Lane. The project is jointly sponsored by the Defiance College Social Work Organization, art department, and office of spiritual life. The goal is to raise funds to help feed the hungry, with all proceeds going to the PATH Center.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for DC students and youth under 17. Meal-only tickets can be purchased for $7. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance at Defiance College’s information desk in Defiance Hall and the information desk at the Northtowne Mall.
Area restaurants and individuals make and donate a variety of soups and breads included in the dinner menu, with soup served in handmade bowls. Defiance College art students and local artist Brandon Knott with the help of Bryan High School will be making bowls for this year’s event. Diners will be encouraged to continue using these one-of-a-kind bowls as a reminder of those who their donations will serve.
Restaurants, organizations and individuals donating items for the dinner include Arps Dairy, Barley Grill, Bob Evans Restaurant, Bud’s Restaurant, Cabin Fever Coffee, Carmine’s Little Italy, Charlie's Down Under, DC Women's Club, Maumee Valley Vending, Nancy’s, Scotty’s, Subway, Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers, Mr. and Mrs. Jeffrey Weaner, and President and Mrs. Mark Gordon.
