Empty Bowls Helena

Join us for Empty Bowls Helena on May 18th at the Helena Civic Center Ballroom starting at 4:30 pm. Your support at this fundraiser helps ensure everyone in our community has access to healthy, nutritious food.

Your $50 ticket price includes your choice of ceramic bowls made by The Clay Arts Guild and The Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramics Arts, along with soups, bread, and desserts donated by local restaurants and bakeries.

A silent auction, brought to you by Big Sky Brokers, with “must-have” items from local artists and businesses will also help make sure every bowl in Helena is full.

Empty Bowls Helena is brought to you this year in partnership with Stockman Bank.
This event helps fund food programs that support the local Helena community.
