    Volunteers of America Northern Rockies will be holding their annual Empty Bowl event on October 24 from 5:00-7:00 pm at the Fremont County Fairgrounds.

    What is the “Empty Bowl” and who does it support?

    Empty Bowl is a time for the community to gather in support of the work VOA does every day to help in our communities.

    It’s a family friendly event that features gourmet soups donated and served by local restaurants, churches, and organizations as well as unique bowls, children’s games, & door prizes.

    Pick your bowl, eat some delicious soup, & keep your bowl FOREVER! It’s that simple.

    This signature fundraiser brings in critically needed funds for their services. The best part is that ALL proceeds go directly to helping your friends and neighbors in need!

    How do I become a “Soup Donor”?

    1. Complete the Soup Donor Form and submit to Allison Hunn at [email protected] by October 18th.

    Then what?

    2. A soup menu will be available for each guest at the Empty Bowl. This soup menu will provide the table number, soup type, and donor for each soup! If the type of soup changes, please inform Allison Hunn by October 18th.

    3. There is limited space for roasters and croc pots at the venue due to electrical and outlet limitations. Inform Allison Hunn of the number of roasters/croc pots you plan to bring to the event. Chafing dishes are a great idea and solution! You must bring a heating source for your soup.

    4. Do not bring extension cords or power strips. VOA will provide all cords.

    5. Arrive at the Fremont County Fairgrounds with your warm/hot soup on October 24th by 4pm. We will serve soup between 5:00pm and 7:00pm.

    6. Check-in at the soup table to receive your assigned table number and serving location.

    7. A label with your name and soup type will be provided at your serving table.

    If you have any questions, please contact Allison Hunn at 307.672.0475 or [email protected].



    Families $30 – Adults $15 – Kids $5 (kids 5 and under are free)

    Or save $5 by purchasing your tickets at the Riverton Chamber of Commerce before the event.

    How can I give more?

    YOU can become a sponsor of the Empty Bowl! Each donation comes with tickets to the event and recognition on marketing material. There are levels, each with different perks! To find out how you can be a sponsor, contact Evan Abla at [email protected].

    OR do you have some cool bowls lying around the house? Donations of bowls will be accepted! Half the fun is seeing the wide variety of bowls that are gathered throughout the year and given out the night of the event. If you would like to donate bowls, you can drop them off at the County 10 offices at 2255 Brunton Court, Suite A, in Riverton. 

    Volunteers of America is committed to extending a hand up to those in need,
