Valentine’s Dinner for a Good Cause
January 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$15
Anyone interested in having a meaningful Valentine’s Day should head to Ipswich Feb. 13 for the annual Empty Bowl Dinner.
Organized by Rotary, the event sees people choose a hand-painted bowl before they try out soups and chowders prepared by local restaurants.
The diner’s then take the bowl home as an unspoken reminder that “somewhere – someone’s bowl is empty.”
The meal is simple: soup, bread and a cookie. Tickets cost $15 (kids and students are $10) and proceeds will benefit the Open Door Food Pantry in Ipswich, which serves Ipswich, Rowley, Topsfield, Boxford, Hamilton and Wenham.
Although the meal is simple, the venue is elegant. The dinner will be held again this year at the Hellenic Center on County Road (at the intersection of Route 1A and Route 133).
Date: Wednesday, February 13, 2019
Time: 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Where: Hellenic Center
117 County Road, Ipswich
Cost: $15 for Adults, $10 for Children under 12
