Serving others with many hands and one heart

Empty Bowls is not just an an annual fundraiser, it’s one of the community’s favorite events. Started in 2000 by Dr. and Mrs. Robert Bankov, this event is held each February at the Morehead City Civic Center. Proceeds benefit both Hope Mission and Martha’s Mission. A $20.00 donation allows for a choice of a handmade bowl by an area potter and art students and soup donated by local restaurants. The empty bowl is taken-home is a reminder of those worldwide whose bowls are empty.

Tickets must be purchased in advance of the event. Join our mailing list or LIKE our Facebook page for more information on the next Empty Bowls event. Tickets make great Christmas gifts and can be purchased in the month of December at Hope Mission Thrift Store office, 1502 Bridges Street in Morehead City. Additional ticket sale locations are generally listed closer to the time of the event.

Hope Mission Charity Golf Tournament is held annually sometime in June. In addition to a fun round of golf and the opportunity to win prizes, trophies and bragging rights, there is always great fellowship and food!

Of course, the greatest aspect of the tournament is that the proceeds provide food, shelter and financial aid to the less fortunate in our community through Hope Mission. The current economic situation and high jobless rate have contributed to increased needs, so your participation and/or contribution is more important than ever before.

Once we confirm the date for the current year’s tournament, all the details plus Tournament Sponsorship Forms and Registration forms are available online.

There are lots of ways for you to participate with Hope Mission and help our community:

  • Personal items for Shelter Guests
  • Food items for Community Kitchen
  • Start a fund raising event
  • Volunteer
  • Cash is always welcome!
