Empty Bowl Annual Fundraiser at the Gardiner Museum


Empty Bowl Annual Fundraiser
The Gardiner Museum
October 12th, 2023


For over 25 years, the Gardiner Museum has hosted Empty Bowls to raise funds for Anishnawbe Health Toronto (@supportanishnawbe), an Indigenous foundation committed to enacting positive change through traditional and Western healthcare practices.

Mark your calendars for October 12! After a two-year hiatus and virtual event in 2022, our famous annual fundraiser, Empty Bowls, is back in-person at the #GardinerMuseum. Tickets are already 75% sold out! 🥣

Here’s how it works:

Choose a handmade ceramic bowl, generously donated by talented local potters, and use it to sample a variety of delicious soups made by renowned Ontario chefs. Take your bowl home after the event as a reminder of your contribution!

All proceeds from the event go directly to Anishnawbe Health Toronto.
