As always the Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center appreciates your donation of artwork for the Silent Auction portion of the Project.

The event is on Friday, October 18, but please allow for the time needed to catalog the donated item.

Please be sure to attach the name of the artist, who donated (if not the artist), what the piece is (oil, watercolor, etc.), the retail value and suggested opening bid.

The Foothills Food Bank thanks everyone for their past generosity and hopes you will help make it the best Empty Bowls Project ever by donating an item to the silent auction.

For almost two decades, members and friends of the Sonoran Arts League have been creating ceramic and glass bowls in support of the Foothills Food Bank Empty Bowls Project held in awareness of World Hunger Day. Each year, on the 3rd Friday in October, the public is invited to join us in Carefree Town Center. Visitors choose from a wide selection of unique handmade bowls for a minimum donation of $15 each a simple lunch provided by the Carefree Resort & Conference Center is served in the bowl. A silent art auction adds another dimension to this event. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to the Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center – approximately $20,000 is raised each year.
