The Empty Bowls Carson City event will occur Friday, Dec. 1 from 4-8 p.m. at the Carson Mall.
This year, nearly 1,000 hand-crafted bowls were created by local community members and artisans at Ogres-Holm Pottery studio in Carson City.
The food is donated by local restaurants. Several local groups will be providing entertainment throughout the evening. This year’s restaurant participants include Flavors of India, Mangia Tutto, Poke Beach, Glen Eagles, Great Basin Brewing Co., Casino Fandango, Fox Brewpub and The Grille at Gold Dust West.
Proceeds will go to the food program at Friends In Service Helping. The event will share the evening with the Silver and Snowflake Festival of Lights tree lighting event.
For $15, attendees will receive a hand-crafted bowl to take home and the opportunity to try any of the specialty meals donated by local restaurants.
Tickets can be purchased at the FISH Carson City Thrift Store, Monday-Saturday; Ogres-Holm Pottery, or online at
