Santa Anita Golf Course Club House
This year marks our 8th EMPTY BOWLS event. For most of us, soup at a dinner table represents home and security. For our clients, a dinner table and soup may be out of reach. This evening brings together caring supporters from 12 cities in the San Gabriel Valley to enjoy soup provided by the generosity of local restaurants.
Come, listen to jazz music from Big Band Theory and enjoy delicious soup from Charlie’s Trio, Poppy Cake and Cafe, El Pollo Loco, Pasadena Sandwich Shop, Fiore Cafe South Pasadena, Matt Denny’s Arcadia, Crooked Gaff in Whittier and from many other restaurants and take home a beautifully hand-crafted ceramic bowl donated by Heather C. Morrow, Pasadena City College, Xiem Clay Center and other local artists.
Our wonderful Mayors from Rosemead, Alhambra, Arcadia, Sierra Madre, San Gabriel, Whittier, and other local cities will serve soup that local restaurant have generously provided to over 200 caring supporters.
Your ticket purchase of EMPTY BOWLS will help us change the future for a homeless family. Every day Family Promise of San Gabriel Valley (FPSGV) takes calls from families who, by virtue of a lost job or a rent increase or a sudden illness, are suddenly unable to sustain the security of a home. FPSGV’s task is to reach out and provide a path to a new home for a family in need.
