Announcements

ALIVE!’s 6th Annual Empty Bowls Alexandria will be held at the Durant Art Center in Old Town on Saturday, February 25th with all funds raised making an immediate impact in the lives of our neighbors in need.

The event has sold out every year we have hosted, and we anticipate that it will again in 2023, especially since it’s the first year we have held it since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Early Bird registration closes January 25 (early bird price is $75)
Registration is $95 once early bird registration closes
