On Oct. 19, Kodak Center Theater, formerly Theater on the Ridge, will open its doors to patrons wishing to purchase soup donated by area chefs and handmade, one-of-a-kind bowls created by local artists to benefit people in crisis served by Catholic Family Center programs throughout Monroe County.
Empty Bowls is a grassroots effort that raises awareness and money to address homelessness and hunger in towns and cities nationwide. Some 400 guests will pay to attend a simple supper of bread and soup, and guests will choose a bowl to keep.
The event also will feature local beer, wine, desserts, live music and a silent auction. In 2016, artists donated more than 600 bowls, totaling more than $28,000 in donations.
Tickets can be purchased at www.cfcrochester.org/events/.
