Eat for a Cause at the Haitian Empty Bowl Fundraiser in Lake Worth April 9
The festival featuring tasting samples from 15 Lake Worth eateries will take place April 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Created to benefit Haitian children impacted by the devastating earthquake, last year's event raised more than $5,000. This year, all proceeds will go to a nonprofit arts-based organization -- the Art Creation Foundation for Children -- benefiting children in need in Jacmel, Haiti.
Participating eateries include La Bonne Bouche, the Cottage, Java Juice Bar, Taco Lady, TooJay's, Rita's Italian Ice, Havana Hideout, Kilwin's, Nature's Way, Paws on the Avenue (doggy treats), Rum Shack, Downtown Pizza, Dolce Vita, Dave's Last Resort and Raw Bar, Brogue's, Rotelli's, and Fiorentina.
Pick your favorite handcrafted ceramic bowl from more than 500 donated by Palm Beach artists for $25 ($35 each day of event, or four bowls for $80) and take it to participating vendors for a sample of culinary delights. Those with a hankering for wine can stop by Dolce Vitata for tastings.
Don't have a dog sitter? No worries; even pets will be fed a treat if you take a bowl to Paws on the Avenue.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery, 605 Lake Ave. in downtown Lake Worth. Call 561-588-8344.
