Empty Bowls Gala


A Gala to Benefit Agape Food Bank 
Saturday, November 15, 2014 from 6PM - 10PM
at Polk State College
3425 Winter Lake Road in Lakeland


Empty Bowls Gala features a live and silent auction of hand painted ceramic bowls and other works by local and regional artists, community leaders and national celebrities, to benefit local hunger relief. 

More than just works of art, these "empty bowls" serve as a reminder of the more than 100,000 children, seniors and family members in Polk County who struggle to put food on the table every day.

Adam Putnam, Agricultural Commissioner,
received last year's "Champion Against Hunger”
award for his efforts to alleviate hunger in
our community. He painted an "empty bowl"
(pictured right) for the auction.
