Mayfield Empty Bowls Project Tickets on Sale
By West Kentucky Star Staff
GRAVES COUNTY, KY - Here is a fun way to help feed local
needy families while your family enjoys a unique dining experience
this spring. Plan to attend the 4th annual Empty Bowls event April 29
at Trace Creek Baptist Church’s Family Life Center, 3577 State
Route 131, near Mayfield.
From 11 am to 1 pm diners will select
from a mixture of hand-painted and specially selected bowls, which
they use to sample tasty fare from about 20 local restaurants that
have donated their talents, time and food to the event. After eating,
you take your special bowl home as a constant reminder of the hungry
people around the world and in your own community. This year’s
event includes a silent auction and door prizes. There will also be
surprise souvenirs for diners.
All proceeds from the event will
benefit the Mayfield-Graves County Food Pantry, which serves about
350 local families each month.
The $15 tickets are available at Trace
Creek Baptist Church from 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday; The
Good News Shoppe, 203 East South Street; or for tickets of 20 or more
call Event Coordinator Claudia Heath at 270-705-6062. Tickets are
also available at the door.
