North Helpline’s 2022 Empty Bowls Hybrid Event

March 2022

North Helpline hired GFS Events to coordinate their 13th annual spring fundraiser Empty Bowls. Similar to last year’s hybrid event, North Helpline was in 5 locations and hand out bowls and soups in-person, and host a 5-day-long virtual fundraiser. From March 11-15, we hosted sites around the Lake City & Bitter Lake area where guests could reserve an artisan bowl and soup that was donated by local restaurants. GFS worked with each pick up location and the partner restaurants who donated soup to coordinate pickups and hosting logistics for each space. GFS implemented an event timeline, managed all logistics, assisted in auction procurement, online auction produced marketing content and messaging, and created the event design. Together, we helped North Helpline reach their fundraising goal!

Fun Fact
For two days during the week, we served hot soups and guests were encouraged to stay and enjoy while socializing with other North Helpline supporters.
