empty bowls

The ‘Empty Bowls’ event is Desert Sun’s biggest annual fundraiser since starting back in 2015.

What is Empty Bowls?

The core purpose of Empty Bowls is to raise funds for Desert Sun’s many, many community resources and projects.

The event is a dinner involving local restaurants, wineries, cideries and breweries.   The dishes – one-of-a-kind soup bowls, handmade and donated by the Osoyoos Potters – are take-home souvineers for the event’s attendees.

Empty Bowls usually takes place late Fall and tickets can be purchased online before the event.
