Wayzata High School’s 20th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser is set for Thursday, May 19, from 5 - 7 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.

All of the proceeds from this fundraiser benefit Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners. The suggested donation for the event is $10.

For the suggested donation, each bowl chosen by the patrons, is filled with steaming soup and a piece of bread. Students, alumni, district administrators and local city officials work with donated clay throughout the year to craft approximately 1,000 bowls. Patrons of the event have always found the bowls to be collectibles and the students inscribe the bowls with the artist’s name and the date of the event.

Last year, the event has raised more than $8,000 for the IOCP to directly benefit the fight against hunger in the Twin Cities. In the 20 years WHS has held the event, Empty Bowls has raised $70,524 for IOCP.

Tickets can be purchased at the IOCP office in Wayzata, the WHS activities office, the second floor office at WHS and the CES office at Central Middle School, as well as at the door on the evening of the event.
