Unfortunately for some it’s not all fun and games in Las Vegas. Like every other community in America, there are poor and homeless people. And we in Vegas care about them!
Tomorrow is the Empty Bowl Benefit at Green Valley High School in Henderson. It’s a delicious event that helps feed the poor.
Here’s how it works:
You pay $15 to get in. You get a clay bowl that was hand-made by the Nevada Clay Guild. You wash the bowl and then get to fill it up with five savory homemade soups. (Just like at the Sweet Tomatoes buffet.) Everybody gets what it feels like to be on a soup line.
Local artists exhibit their works which are auctioned off during the event. The gavel falls from 12-1:30 pm. All the proceeds go to a Nevada charity, the Catholic Worker.
Doors open at 11:30 but the line starts at 10 am. Volunteers stop serving the soup at 2 pm.
Every time I look at last year’s bowl I remember how lucky I am to live in Las Vegas and be able to afford to feed myself.
