Take a sneak peak into the Empty Bowl silent auction – Do you have your tickets? Happening Thursday!
Volunteers of America (VOA) will hold their annual Empty Bowl event, Thursday, October 24, from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Fremont County Fairgrounds (1010 Fairgrounds Dr, Riverton, Wyoming 82501).
“The evening will be a wonderful way to not only raise money, but to raise awareness for those in need throughout our community. Volunteers of America would like to thank the Empty Bowl major sponsors, Bailey Enterprises, First Interstate Bank and Hi Mountain Seasonings, as well as all of the other sponsors who make Empty Bowl a success,” said Bob Mazgaj, Chief Development Officer for Volunteers of America. “We will have live music and games for kids while enjoying gourmet soups and taking home unique bowls.”
“The goal of the night is to highlight the extraordinary role each of us can play in empowering those less fortunate to build healthy and happy lives. Throughout 2018, VOA provided services to 10,049 individuals and families and with the continued support from communities we will serve even more in 2019 and beyond,” Bob Mazgaj added.
All funds raised at Empty Bowl go to Volunteers of America’s services in the Fremont County community.
Tickets for the event are available at the door with costs of $30 for families (two adults and two kids), $15 for adults, and $5 for kids; children five and under are free. Or you can save $5 on each adult or family ticket by purchasing them in advance at the Riverton Chamber of Commerce (213 W Main St #3462). The addition of pre-sale tickets will help get folks into the event more quickly, so that even more people can enjoy the community event.
