The 13th Annual Empty Bowl is a joint fundraiser for both the
Golden Harvest Food Bank and the Augusta Jewish Community Center!

The original EMPTY BOWL event served lunch guests a simple meal of soup and bread in a beautifully hand-crafted ceramic bowl made by local students and artists. The guests would then keep the bowl as a reminder of hunger in the world...humble beginnings have grown to a community event helping many each year. This year we celebrate 13 years.


SHOP THE CSRA's LARGEST SILENT AUCTION!
Over 225 items from some of the area's best shops, stores   and boutiques, plus gift certificates featuring the area's best services and restaurants, will be available for bid! The Silent Auction opens at 11:00 AM
