The Annual Empty Bowl Event: Friday, May 11th 2018 6 PM to 9 PM at Garten Verein - PLEASE share, PLEASE help - the need is greater than ever: Sixteen years ago, The Unitarian Universalists of Galveston County introduced a beautiful event to Galveston Island. Based on a project initiated by a Grade School Art Teacher who wanted to show his students how they could respond to a social need in the community through art. They hand fashioned ceramic bowls, then offered them for contributions and donated the proceeds to a local soup kitchen calling it “The Empty Bowl ”. The concept has gone international – and here in Galveston over 400 bowls are hand fashioned each year by this loving and dedicated group; the actual event on Friday, May 11th at 6 PM will be held in the Garten Verein a beautiful , hexagonal, historic structure in Kempner Park. Some of the finest restaurants will donate soup, bread and desserts. Participants pay $50 per ticket or sponsor a table of ten for $1500 (allowing your party to sit together at a reserved table); select the bowl of your delight, then sample the delicious soups! It has become one of Galveston’s most popular events, because, 100% of the funds raised go to support the nutrition programs of The Jesse Tree, a local, faith-based, non-profit charitable organization. A Silent Auction of additional ceramic ites, Object d'Art and especially beautiful bowls raises additional funds. The Senor Nutrition and Wellness program brings monthly food boxes, healthcare screening, education, social service enrollment and joy to the Senior and Disabled residents of Gulf Breeze, Holland House and The Oaks public housing. Without this event, it would not be possible to be the loving link to care for the poorest citizens of our community. Please be patient as our website is being updated for this event – last year’s Empty Bowl Event raised $26,000 for the nutrition programs, which is about 35% of the overall cost of the program, so you can see how important this event is for those in need. Tickets can be purchased online with credit cards on the website at www.jessetree.net or on The Jesse Tree FaceBook page through PayPal or by check made out to The Jesse Tree and mailed to The Jesse Tree, P.O. Box 575, Galveston, TX 77553 or by calling Ted Hanley (409) 682 6218 or David Mitchell (409) 599 4847 A shoot will come up from the stem of Jesse; from his roots a branch will bear fruit.
