Haywood Pathways Center will present the third Annual Empty Bowls Dinner on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021 at Grace Church in the Mountains, featuring Arnold Hill in concert.

To help ensure the well-being of our guests due to COVID’s impact, this year’s dinner will be a “takeout” affair with “drive-thru” service provided at Grace Church in the Mountains.

This allows our guests to enjoy their dinner in the safety of their home. Flights of soup with bread and desserts will be served and VIP or general admission tickets include a choice of a bowl handcrafted by a local potter as a memento of the evening.

Meals will be available for pick-up from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m.

Arnold Hill will stream a live concert from 6-8 p.m. for guests to enjoy at home.

Tickets are $40 VIP, $25 general admission, and $15 soup flight only. Tickets may be purchased online at www.haywoodpathwayscenter.org or by calling the HPC office at 828-246-0332, or in person at the HPC office located at 179 Hemlock St., Waynesville.

Raffle tickets are $5 each or five for $20. Local businesses and individuals are welcome to donate an item or service to be raffled at the event. Please contact david@haywoodpathways.org to learn more about sponsorship opportunities.
