The Empty Bowls Community Luncheon on September 18th raised more than $41,000 for 5Cities Homeless Coalition programs and services in southern SLO County.
Over the course of two and a half hours, more than 800 people ate soup and bread served by 30 local public servants and celebrities. Patrons consumed more than 120 gallons of soup and 50 loaves of bread provided by 25 local restaurants and bakeries, eating out of bowls selected from hundreds handmade and donated by local artists and students.
Thanks to some very generous donations and a great turnout from the community despite a rainy evening December 3, Fin’s Seafood Restaurant in Grover Beach raised more than $19,500 for children, youth and families impacted by homelessness in southern San Luis Obispo County.
Thanks to the Pismo State Beach Golf Course, Fin’s Seafood Restaurant, and many generous sponsors, 100% of the proceeds from the sixth annual “Hope for the Homeless” Golf Tournament on Sunday, March 1, was donated to 5Cities Homeless Coalition.
The more than $15,000 raised will help support the critical needs of children, youth and families impacted by homelessness in southern San Luis Obispo County.
The Coalition’s mission to help those who are homeless or facing homelessness incorporates three pillars: resources, support and hope. Each is key to improving the personal well-being of our clients as well as strengthening our broader community.Donate Now
