Kiwanis Empty Bowls Evening

Published: February 05, 2019

Tuesday, February 5 from 5:00 to 7:30 pm at the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center

Every winter the Kiwanis Club of Brecksville and the Lions Club of Broadview Heights hold their highly successful “Empty Bowls” dinner to raise money for Brecksville Pantry and Lend a Hand. Brecksville Pantry, one of the two beneficiaries supplies food monthly to about 20 households in Brecksville.
This year’s event is Tuesday, February 5 from 5:00 to 7:30 pm at the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center at Brecksville and Wallings Roads.
The dinner is spartan in order to emphasize the ongoing need to feed less fortunate people right here in our area. Participants “dine” on a bowl of soup, bread and a salad. The food is donated by area restaurants. Kiwanis could not do this without them.
Guests will also be able to keep a handcrafted bowl made by local artisans to commemorate the evening.
Tickets are $15 per person and can be purchased from any Brecksville Kiwanis member or at The Framer’s Gallery in Brecksville Town Center. Tickets will not be sold at the door since the event has been a sellout for five consecutive years.
