Empty Bowls 2012
Empty Bowls turns 22 this year, and MANNA celebrates this momentous occasion with two events! The first event will be the annual lunch, taking place on Monday September 24 from 11:00 to 1:30 at the Doubletree by Hilton Asheville-Biltmore in Biltmore Village. Admission is $25, which entitles attendees to all the soup, bread, and desserts they can handle, in addition to a handcrafted clay bowl to keep, made by local artisans.
To better accommodate the crowds, we’ve added a dinner event as well, to be held at the Hilton Asheville in Biltmore Park. This is a family-friendly event where children under 12 eat for free (bowls are available for each paid adult ticket). The dinner will be held from 5:30 until 7:30. Tickets for dinner are $30.
Lunch tickets: All advance sales will close at 2:00pm on Friday, September 21. No online or phone orders can be processed after that time. An extremely limited number of tickets will be available at the door-first come, first served.
-Dinner tickets: Phone sales will close at 4:00pm on Friday, September 21, and online sales will close at 8:00am on Monday, September 24. No online or phone orders can be processed after those times. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door.
