Tickets are still available for the ninth annual United Way of Big Spring and Howard County Empty Bowls luncheon.
The light meal is part of a national grassroots movement meant to bring attention to world-wide hunger and to finding an end to the plight. Those who participate in the event will receive an original crafted bowl. Money raise from the event helps to support the 15-area agencies supported by the local United Way.
The event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, at the East Room of the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum on the Howard College campus, 1001 Birdwell Lane. Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased at 215 W. Third St. or call 267-5201 or 935-1604.
