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 because on Saturday 14 September you'll want to head over to Dust Temple to participate in the second annual Empty Bowls Project. This 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.
Last year's inaugural event was such a heart-warming success—where $11,000 was raised—they've added 100 additional tickets and will be auctioning off some larger pieces. Organisers tell us they're now down to their final tickets, so don't miss the chance to be a part of something truly special.
Tickets to the event are just $45 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, Grit Ceramics and Norton & Norton.
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 Casuarina, Niche & Co, Elephant Rock Cafe, The Collective, Blacboard Varisty and more. Happy and full bellies are guaranteed.
With all food, staff and services donated, 100% of the money from your ticket will go to Agape Outreach Inc, 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.
