2017 Annual Fundraising Date Set: Mark Your Calendars for Oct. 8

Please mark your calendar and plan to join us for our 2017 fundraiser, happening Sunday, October 8. We look forward to returning for a fifth year to the Kern Center on the Milwaukee School of Engineering Campus and are grateful to MSOE for all their generous support.

19th Annual Milwaukee Empty Bowls Event
Sunday, October 8, 2017
Kern Center – MSOE | 1245 N. Broadway, Milwaukee

Since 1999, Milwaukee Empty Bowls has donated more than $690,000 to help feed those in need in the Milwaukee metro area. More than 95% of the funds raised during this perennially popular event – held around World Food Day – go directly to aid the hungry in our community.

Highlights of this perennially popular event include:

  • Guests at our October event have their choice from a collection of more than 2,000 ceramic bowls handcrafted and donated by local artists, teachers and students.
  • Soups prepared by local chefs are served with bread and other refreshments.
  • Some of the area’s top musicians entertain guests throughout the day.
  • Guests take their bowls home to serve as a reminder that there are always empty bowls in our community.
  • With the involvement and support of MSOE, local businesses and more than 300 volunteers, proceeds from this year’s event will benefit several agencies in the Milwaukee area. Recipients will be announced later this spring.

We look forward to seeing you on October 8!
