Special Events

Volunteer - Empty Bowls

Special events volunteers provide vital support at various REFB events throughout the year. Pour wine, serve meals, and direct event guests. There is a particular need for volunteer support at the REFB’s annual dinner and art auction, Empty Bowls. The inspiring evening of artistic demonstration, mingling, and philanthropy ensures our neighbors’ bowls are filled, and would not be possible without the special event support of dedicated volunteers.
