7th Annual Empty Bowls Dinner
Immaculata University’s Office of Mission and Ministry and Dining Services are co-sponsoring the 7th Annual “Empty Bowls” benefit dinner. The event takes place on Tuesday, March 27, from 5 to 7:00 p.m. in the Great Hall on the University’s campus.
“Empty Bowls” is a charity event to support children affected by AIDS. Proceeds from this event go to the local Camp Dreamcatcher in Kennett Square, PAand to St. Philomena Orphanage in Uganda, Africa. At the event, participants select a bowl that has been crafted and/or decorated by community members and then fill the bowl with soup donated by area restaurants and members of the Immaculata community including Aramark. The “empty” bowl is then taken home to serve as a reminder of the many people locally and globally for whom an empty bowl is a daily reality.
“Please join us in support of St. Philomena Orphanage and Camp Dreamcatcher as Immaculata University continues its outreach to these two organizations. The Immaculata community has always outdone itself in generosity,” commented Sister Cathy Nally, IHM, executive director of Mission and Ministry at Immaculata University.
If you would like to attend, tickets are $25 per person and $5 for students. For more information, please call 610-647-4400, ext. 3084.
Immaculata University is a residential, Catholic, coeducational institution of higher education, located on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
