Immaculata University Hosts 6th Annual Empty Bowls Dinner
Immaculata University´s Office of Mission and Ministry and Dining Services are co-sponsoring the 6th Annual "Empty Bowls" benefit dinner. The event takes place on Thursday, March 10, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. in the Great Hall on the university´s campus.
"Empty Bowls" is a charity event to support children affected by AIDS. Proceeds from this event go to the local Camp Dreamcatcher in Kennett Square, PA and to St. Philomena Orphanage in Uganda, Africa. At the event, participants select a bowl that has been crafted and/or decorated by community members and then fill the bowl with soup donated by area restaurants and members of the Immaculata community. The "empty" bowl is then taken home to serve as a reminder of the many people locally and globally for whom an empty bowl is a daily reality.
Kelly Marshall, who is helping to coordinate the event, commented "It´s been a great experience and the fact that it is a good cause makes it that much more rewarding." Marshall, a Mount Laurel, NJ resident, is a sophomore at Immaculata.
If you would like to attend, tickets are $20 per person and $5 for students. For more information, please call 610-647-4400, ext. 3084.
Immaculata University, a Catholic coeducational institution, is located 20 miles west of Philadelphia, south of the intersection of routes 30 and 352, between Paoli and Exton.
