UPDATE: The first-ever virtual Empty Bowls fundraiser – held from Jan. 15–29, 2021 – raised $10,718 for the Highline and White Center Food Banks.
Not a bad pandemic pivot for the usual in-person fundraising event normally held at the Burien Community Center, which raised around $25,000 in 2020.
“Thank you Burien Community for helping us make the first virtual Empty Bowls event a success!”
Hosts Burien Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services and Discover Burien would like to thank the following for helping make this event happen:
- The B-Town Blog for promotion support
- Highline and White Center Food Banks
- SeaMar Community Health Center
- Elliott Bay Brewing and Solstice Senior Living for videos
- Burien Farmers Market for collecting donations
- Potter Elene Tzetzos for providing her wonderful bowls for donations at the Farmers Market
“We look forward to seeing you in 2022 in person!” organizers said.
