The empty bowl dinner is a silent auction and meal on Wednesday October 10, 2012 from 5:30 to 7:00PM to raise money and awareness for hunger locally and globally.

The dinner is sponsored by Monument Hill Kiwanias. LPHS ceramics classes also helped out by making several unique bowls that are to be donated to the Empty Bowl Dinner.

The guests of the dinner enjoy homemade soups, breads and desserts and choose from homemade bowls that are donated from local artists and Lewis-Palmer School District #38 students. LPHS and PRHS Key Club members and Tri- Lakes Cares organize the evening.

Key Club is at the dinner to serve soup, keep drinks filled, clean and hand out bowls.

“This is a very popular event for Key Club, the members fight for the sign-up sheet. The doors open at 4:30PM and guests are wrapped around the building, waiting to get the bowl they want,” Kendra Boone, head of Key Club at LPHS, said.

The dinner is scheduled for Wednesday October 11, 2012 at Lewis-Palmer High School. The cost is $20 at the door or at the following locations; Covered Treasures Bookstore in Monument, Hi Country Homebrew in Monument, Rosie’s Diner in Monument, Tri-Lakes Printing in Jackson Creek Shopping Center, Rock House Ice Cream, Hangers in downtown Monument, and Serranos in Monument.
