Earlier today (February 6), organizers announced tickets are now available for the YWCA Peterborough Haliburton’s 15th annual Empty Bowls fundraiser, which takes place on Friday, March 1st.

During the event, you can enjoy a delicious lunch donated by local restaurants along with your choice of a hand-crafted bowl, created and donated by local artisans of the Kawartha Potters’ Guild, Kawartha Woodturners Guild, and Artisans Centre Peterborough.

Alternatively, instead of a bowl, you can choose a charitable tax receipt from YWCA Peterborough Haliburton.

You can either dine-in at The Venue in downtown Peterborough or have your pre-ordered lunch delivered within Peterborough.
