Empty Bowls —Five Golden Bowls — is right around the corner, but there is still time to purchase a ticket.

Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at First Christian Church — located at 911 Goliad — 150 people will have the opportunity to not only support the United Way of Big Spring and Howard County, but also to enjoy homemade soups and take home a one-of-a-kind bowl.

“This is a great way for the community to show their support for the United Way and at the same time it draws attention to a problem that exists all over the world,” executive director Sandy Stewart said.
