The Empty Bowls Fundraiser has a 2020 drive-thru twist. Join Expressions Pottery Workshop, the Women’s Club of East Granby and Friend to Friend for the 20th Annual Empty Bowls (drive-thru) fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 24, 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. All proceeds benefit the Friend to Friend Food Pantry which provides food to pre-qualified East Granby residents in need. In lieu of a sit-down meal this year, it will be a drive-thru venue to safely continue this fall tradition.
Please visit the website for either a mail-in form to purchase ticket(s), or register and pay online. Each person will receive a hand-potted bowl, one coupon for a featured bowl of soup and one coupon for a featured dessert confection from participating restaurants/shops that are valid through Dec. 31, 2020. An overview of the event and participating restaurants will also be included. And, of course you’ll also receive a complimentary pumpkin from Peter L. Brown!
On Saturday, Oct. 24, follow signage for the drive-thru line at the East Granby Community/Senior Center parking lot for pick up. Volunteers will be masked and gloved to hand out items while you remain in your vehicle. To help keep lines moving, ticket holders registered with last names beginning A-L should arrive between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and those with last names M-Z arrive between 12:30 and 1:30 p.m.
Thank you in advance for supporting this more-important-than-ever fundraiser that helps stock the pantry through the busy winter season.
