An email from House of Hope representative Jen Avery announced a highly successful Empty Bowl Supper event.

At one point in the event from noon to three lines were out the door of the Honey and Hops Brews Works where participants picked up bowls for their soups.

The soups were generously donated by 12 different area restaurants.

At least 12 different downtown merchants along with several civic minded individuals, organizations and groups helped in this year’s effort.

Once again this year Passage Creek Rising provided the entertainment downtown as they have for the past 7 years.

This year Passage Creek Rising added special guest Ed McCurdy of House of Hope to the entertainment.

The funds raised will help to run the House of Hope programs that assist men who are otherwise homeless and need to rebuild their lives.
