Empty Bowls is not just an annual luncheon fundraiser, it’s one of the community’s favorite events. Started by Dr. and Mrs. Robert and Ginny Bankov, this event is held each February at the Morehead City Civic Center. The purchase of a $25.00 ticket allows for a choice of a handmade bowl donated by an area potter and art students, as well as a choice of 2 soups provided by Carteret Community College Culinary School. The empty bowl taken home is a reminder of those worldwide whose bowls are empty.  There are also silent auctions and raffles!
