Tickets are now on sale for the annual YWCA Peterborough Haliburton Empty Bowls fundraiser, which takes place this year from 12 to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, February 23rd.
By purchasing a ticket, you will receive a lunch of soups, salads, breads, and desserts donated by local restaurants and businesses, as well as a hand-crafted bowl donated by members of the Kawartha Potters Guild, Kawartha Wood Turners Guild, and Artisans Centre Peterborough.
New this year, you can select a charitable tax receipt in lieu of the hand-crafted bowl.
On February 23rd, you can choose to enjoy a sit-down lunch at The Venue (286 George St. N., Peterborough) or pick up a pre-ordered lunch from the YWCA (216 Simcoe Street, Peterborough).
Kawartha Cardiology Clinic (327 Charlotte St, Peterborough) is the title sponsor for this year’s event, with Cornerstone Family Dentistry (681 Reid St., Peterborough) the to-go lunch sponsor.
Tickets are $35 for either the sit-down or to-go lunch, which includes an artisan bowl or a charitable tax receipt, or you can buy a $45 “early bird” ticket for exclusive early access for the best selection of lunch options and bowls.
Tickets are limited, and you can get them now online at www.ywcagifts.com , by calling 705-743-3526, or by visiting the YWCA office.
All proceeds from YWCA Empty Bowls directly support YWCA JustFood and Crossroads Shelter’s Nutritional Wellbeing Program, helping local women and children enjoy fresh ingredients, learn life-changing food skills, and build community.
