SHERIDAN — The Volunteers of America Northern Rockies will host their annual Empty Bowl event Thursday.

The fundraising event serves attendees a simple dinner emulating what one might eat at a soup kitchen served in a handcrafted bowl and accompanied by music from Canary Joe, a silent auction, face painting for kids and more. Attendees keep their dinner bowls as reminders about homelessness.

The event will run from 5-8 p.m. at the Sheridan County YMCA.

Tickets are available at the door for $25 per family, $10 for adults, $5 for kids and children under five are free. All proceeds benefit the Sheridan Community Homeless Shelter.

For more information call Angela Lockard at 672-0475.

The Y is located at 417 N. Jefferson St.
