11-23-13 empty bowls fundraiser

It’s time for soup!  The chilly weather seems to be asking for it and a look at the calendar tells us that soup is certainly in the forecast.  And on Wednesday, December 4th the Fond du Lac community will be in luck as the 2013 Empty Bowls Fundraiser will be taking place – for all to attend and enjoy!  The event benefits local food pantries and people in Fond du Lac that deal with hunger.  One of the many best parts of this event is that there is almost an endless amount of choices of soup – thanks to the generous businesses making and donating delicious selections for the event. And you can try them all!  Boda’s Restaurant and Catering, Fat Joe’s Bar & Grill, Red Cabin at Green Acres, Salty’s Seafood & Spirits, Sunset on the Water Grill & Bar, Trepanier’s Backyard Grill & Bar are all generously donating delicious soups, ensuring that the bowls are filled with delectable cuisine.
