Scottsdale Community Partners, a nonprofit organization that supports the youth, families, and seniors in Scottsdale, AZ, has announced that they will be assisting with the event known as Alli Ortega Empty Bowls 2017. The event, which will take place on November 29, from 11am until 6pm, will help to raise money to fight local hunger. All are welcome to attend the event and purchase a handcrafted ceramic bowl and enjoy a modest meal.

Jenny Adams, Executive Director of Scottsdale Community Partners, says: "We are very excited about this upcoming event. It will be an opportunity for people to come together, help their local community, and support an important effort to combat hunger."

Alli Ortega Empty Bowls 2017 is a result of the partnership of Scottsdale Unified Schools, Scottsdale Arts, City of Scottsdale agencies, Scottsdale Community Partners, and Scottsdale Community College. All proceeds are to be donated to Scottsdale Community Partners for the benefit of Vista del Camino Social Services, which provides a variety of assistance for Scottsdale residents to meet the basic needs of individuals and families in crisis, and relieve economic and emotional stress. Dedicated to the spirit of volunteerism, this program is named in memory of the late Alli Ortega, who was a local artist, City of Scottsdale employee, and loyal Empty Bowls volunteer.

All bowls that can be purchased have been crafted by local community artisans and youths. They will be available in the Student Center Cafetaria. SCC Culinary Arts students will also be there to prepare and serve pasta. This meal is included in the price of the bowl. Food will be available from 11am until 2pm.

The event will also be attended by the SCC Jazz Band, who will be offering musical entertainment. Payments for the bowl can be made in cash, through debit or credit card, or by writing a check. Checks are to be made payable to Scottsdale Community Partners. At 12:30pm, representatives from partnering organizations and from the Ortega family will make a short speech.

Holly Snopko, President of Scottsdale Community Partners, says: "We really look forward to seeing everybody there and to share some food and good company."
