Burien’s 12th annual ‘Empty Bowls’ fundraiser will be held on Friday, Jan. 27, 2017, with both a lunch and dinner serving at the Burien Community Center, located at 14700 6th Ave SW. Last year’s fundraiser had 1,125 guests and brought in $18,205, which was split between the Highline Area and White Center Food Banks. Moshier potters have teamed up with Discover Burien and Burien Parks and Recreation to host Empty Bowls 2017. Empty Bowls events can be found around the country raising money to combat hunger in our communities.  Potters have donated  bowls to be filled with soup at this fun event…and all are invited! Your donation will get you the opportunity to pick out a beautiful handmade bowl, as well as a simple but wonderful meal of soup, bread, drink and dessert donated by area businesses. Proceeds will go to the Highline Food Bank and White Center Food Bank. They will also host a raffle/auction of beautiful handmade serving bowls  and platters, and wine!  Wine sampling from 4-5pm, and wine for purchase from 4–8 p.m. For more information, please call (206) 988-3700.
