Empty Bowls 2013

Empty Bowls Event 2013

North Helpline‘s 5th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser is Sunday, May 4th, Noon – 3:00 p.m. in The Commons at Nathan Hale High School (10750 30th Ave NE). Soup, salad, bread, and dessert will be provided by a number of local restaurants including Piatti Restaurante, Got Soup?, Wedgwood Ale House, and Kaffeekaltsch. There will also be an extensive silent auction and live entertainment. Tickets are $25 purchased in advance, or $35 at the door.

The event is part of the the Empty Bowls Project, an international grassroots effort to raise both money and awareness in the fight to end hunger. The bowl you enjoy a warm meal from and take home with you becomes a tangible reminder of hunger in our community.

North Helpline (12736 33rd Ave NE) combats hunger and homelessness in greater North Seattle by providing critical human services to more than 1,700 clients each week. They operate a food bank and health care clinic in addition to offering move-in support, eviction and utility shut-off prevention, help with obtaining a driver’s license or ID, and hygiene packs.

If you’re unable to attend the event but are still interested in supporting North Helpline, here are some other opportunities:

  1. Even a casual stroll through the SEAPLEX blog reveals something fascinating about scientific
    work: moment to moment, it looks like any other kind of work,
    but the long view is of something utterly different from most
    other kinds of work. From this airport, guests are able to
    rent a car or, as a more inexpensive option, take a shuttle from the airport to
    the north entrance. This comes in handy if someone should fall into the water.

  2. With channel cats I use a lighted bobber and you can use either a
    chemical light attached to your bobber or there are several battery operated lighted bobbers that work well too.
    Trout fishing is often done in scenic country with few other anglers providing
    a relaxing environment. If you do, and if you eat fish
    every night, keep what you need to sustain them.

  3. In fact you will be fully awake for the entire process and can even view it
    in a mirror that will also be provided for you. They are more
    than just gaps in a wall that let in light or a way to see outside or through which we gain access or
    exit our properties. Miami won’t need to rely heavily on Lewis, but he’ll increase the team’s depth
    and provide yet another scoring option on arguably the league’s most dangerous offensive team.

  4. And, it just works with a soft laser which utilizes less energy
    than a 40-watt light bulb. Your veterinarian may prescribe a specific parasitic shampoo (or a
    dip, if more severe) to begin treatment, followed
    by a treatment of an ointment or cream, for healing the parasitic sores.
    Now keep on braiding by using your free index finger and thumb of your one hand to grab
    the back section of your hair.
