Our 13th Annual Empty Bowls Event was a success!
THANK YOU! to everyone who donated or volunteered for our Empty Bowls fundraiser on June 1! The event was an amazing success, with everything going smoothly and enjoyed by a full, happy, sold-out crowd. AND we raised over $55,000 - far beyond our anticipated goal, and 1/3 above last year’s total!
AND, with minimal event expenses due to everyone’s generosity, almost all the proceeds will go directly toward supporting Plowshares’ core mission “that no one in our community go hungry.” We are now serving more than 200 full, hot, nutritious meals daily (over 70,000/year) in our Community Dining Room and Meals-on-Wheels programs, in addition to the homeless support and other services we provide for the most vulnerable members of our community.
We’d like to particularly thank our Gold Sponsors: Adventist Health Ukiah Valley, Flow Kana, and Friedman’s Home Improvement; our Silver Sponsors: AT&T, Beckstoffer Vineyards, Community First Credit Union, Frey Vineyards, Rick & Colleen Henderson, McCarty’s Autobody, Mendocino Redwood Companies, and Redwood Credit Union; and our Bronze Sponsors: C&C Construction, One Feather Ranch, and Savings Bank of Mendocino County.
There were far too many other donors and volunteers to thank here, so please see the list of all who made the Empty Bowls event such a spectacular success, and help us thank the good-hearted people whose generosity is doing so much good for those in need!
