We’re seriously #blessed here on the Coast. We have beautiful weather, loads of awesome things to do and a lifestyle that many can only dream of. So, we reckon it’s important to remember to give back every now and then, ‘cause it’s cool to be kind right?
So, clear your diary ‘cause on Saturday 15, September we’re telling you to head over to the Dust Temple to participate in the Empty Bowls Project. This worldwide initiative is an international grassroots effort to raise both money and awareness in the fight to end hunger. The mission is to create positive and lasting change through the arts, education and projects that build community, one bowl at a time.
Tickets to the event are just $35 and for your troubles you’ll be able to choose a bowl to keep, handcrafted by some of the nation’s most talented artists including our faves Marloe Marloe and Norton & Norton. There's even bowls worth a whopping $500! And no we're not going to tell you which ones they are.
You’ll then be served a simple but delicious meal donated by a local restaurant. And when we say delicious we really mean it, they’ve got a whole host of awesome eateries on board, including Tucker from The Commons in Casuarina, Stable Coffee Kitchen from the Cornerstone Stores in Currumbin, Elephant Rock Cafe, Parlour Coffee and Halcyon House’s award-winning restaurant Paper Daisy. Happy and full bellies are guaranteed.
In exchange for your meal and bowl, the money from your ticket will go to Agape Outreach, a local charity serving the homeless and hungry in our community. A night out AND doing good for those less fortunate—that’s a straight up 10/10 from us.
