October 10 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm $20.00 – $37.00
Project ECHO’s 20th annual Empty Bowl Supper has now become the first annual Empty Bowl Picnic!
After the past 6 months of quarantine and closures, we’re all ready to get outside and have some good, clean (a.k.a. safe) fun. We invite you to gather your family, a picnic blanket or two, and possibly even a few pillows and chairs. We’ll all be able to enjoy an atmosphere of community while still maintaining social distance and we believe that’s something that could benefit everyone right now, not just Project ECHO.
For this picnic, Running Hare will provide a beautiful backdrop, a delicious soup selection, and a cash bar. Musical entertainment comes from none other than local favorite, Eclectic Wave. As always, ticketholders will receive a hand-crafted artisan bowl as well as a booklet featuring local businesses that have supported ECHO through the pandemic and a few stories directly from the shelter. Unfortunately, the traditional Silent Auction is still postponed but we have some amazing raffle items available. Raffle tickets can be purchased via EmptyBowlRaffle.com. Raffle winners will be announced at the Empty Bowl Picnic but you do not have to be present to win.
Event tickets can only be purchased in advance from now until October 7th. This event is low-contact so tickets and soup orders will be scanned directly from your phones, or when necessary, your printed purchase confirmations. However, for those who prefer a paper ticket, we didn’t forget you. Tickets are available in limited quantities from our shelter and thrift shop.
We want you all to be safe and comfortable so this event is low-contact with plenty of social distancing space. Bring your own blanket and pick your picnic spot as close or as far as you’d like.
If you prefer to support Project ECHO from a distance, choose the drive-up option for soup-to-go.
Tickets will not be sold at the gate and online sales end on October 7th. Don’t risk missing out, reserve your spot and get your tickets today! https://go.rallyup.com/echopicnic
