For years now, Solus has been a proud sponsor of A Loving Spoonful, a local charity that delivers free nutritious meals to men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS in Metro Vancouver. Last Thursday, we celebrated Project Empty Bowl, their largest fundraiser, which was a smashing success raising over $125,000.
This year’s Project Empty Bowl Gala Presented by Coast Capital Savings was hosted by Jonny Staub from The Beat 94.5 FM. The evening of charity began with the ‘Complicated Cosmo’ martini, a bowl swap, complimentary wine and beer, and a stunning silent and live auction including rare and incredible works of art. Solus is proud to have donated our new Firecube firepit with its matching propane tank holder to this auction (as seen above).
The money raised will help provide about 28,000 locally-produced meals from Mava Foods (almost 1/3 of annual meals) and serve about 350 people each month. A loving Spoonful only receives about 20% of their funding from the government so relies heavily on community support and its fundraising events to provide these essential services.
Solus prides ourselves on supporting our community and are touched that the money raised from our Firecube will feed many people in need. Check out A Loving Spoonful if you would like to donate or volunteer your time.
