Tuesday, February 28, 2017
Long Branch Elementary will hold an Empty Bowls Dinner on Thursday, March 9, from 5 to 7 p.m.in the LBE cafeteria.
The meal consists of a bowl of homemade soup, bread, cookie and a drink. Each meal costs $2 per person and proceeds from the event will support the Central New York Food Bank. Other activities that evening will include a silent auction for some "celebrity bowls," raffles and live music.
“This event brings the whole school community together for a fun and worthwhile cause,” said Principal Robert McCrone. “The handmade bowls made by our own students and families, as well as the homemade soups made by our staff help make this a very special event.”
