The El Camino Homeless Organization is hosting their 2018 Empty Bowls luncheon fundraiser this Thursday.
Lunch participants who buy a ticket have a chance to be served by local celebrities including San Luis Obispo County Sheriff Ian Parkinson, Supervisor Debbie Arnold, Mayor Tom O’Malley and several others.
Donators also receive a beautiful bowl that has either been hand-crafted by local artists and students from Atascadero and Paso Robles High Schools, Cuesta College and Atascadero Fine Arts Academy, or collected by an ECHO volunteer.
Organizers say last year’s event alone raised approximately $27,000 which went directly toward ECHO’s efforts to care for the homeless in the North County.
The fundraiser will take place at the Atascadero Bible Church from 11:30 a.m to 1:30 p.m.
Tickets will cost $25 and can be purchased here.
