November 2, 2010 § Leave a comment
Shop and eat at either Austin-area Whole Foods Market store (Lamar or Gateway) on Wednesday, November 3, when 5% of sales will benefit the Austin Empty Bowl Project – an event benefiting the Capital Area Food Bank’s Kids Cafe program.
You can nourish hungry central Texas children while taking care of your own shopping list and grabbing a bite to eat!
We’ll have information on the Austin Empty Bowl Project (Sunday, November 21), bowls for you to decorate for the event, potters throwing bowls on the wheel, photo opportunities, live music and a free drawing for two Preview Party tickets ($150.00 value). You’ll also see this year’s fabulous quilt by Nancy Elder, as well as sample foods from some of our sponsors.
Bowl decorating at the Lamar store is from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and at Gateway from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. ($5 per bowl.)
Tickets for the quilt drawing are $1 each.
Enter for a chance to win the 2 Preview Party tickets – it’s free to enter! Winners will be announced Nov. 4.
