The North Texas Food Bank is shaking things up a bit for its 20th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser. For ages it was held at the Meyerson around the lunchtime hour, attracting legions of downtown Dallas office workers. No matter how cold or wet it was, the guests bundled up to check out the dozens of soup stations set up by area restaurants and chefs, the silent auction and pop-up bowl shop.
Last year the event was moved to FIG and once again the crowds lined up to get in.
This year it’s not only moving to NTFB’s new Perot Family Campus in Plano, but it won’t be held at lunchtime. Rather it will be souper supper from 6 to 9 p.m. with a cast of 20+ restaurants participating, as well as live entertainment.
In addition to receiving hand-crafted bowl from local artisans, guests will be able to check out the NTFB’s new digs.
Returning once again is Kroger as presenting sponsor.
Until Wednesday, January 16, tickets will range from $35 for general admission and $125 for VIPs, who will get an early start time of 5:30 p.m. After Wednesday, general admission will be $40 and VIPs will be $175.
