SAVES celebrates its 40th anniversary


Empty Bowls Palmdale Gala on Sept. 30

Celebrate 40 years of service provided through South Antelope Valley Emergency Services (SAVES) at the inaugural Empty Bowls Palmdale Gala on Saturday, Sept. 30, from 6 to 10:30 pm at Legacy Commons for Active Seniors. The evening will feature an elegantly prepared soup kitchen-style meal, wine, dessert, and auction. Attendees will receive a hand-painted bowl created to honor those in our community who lack food for their families.

Support the Gala at Paint-it-Forward: An Evening of Community, Paint, and Wine scheduled tonight and again on Thursday, Sept. 21, at 6 pm at SAVES, 1002 E Ave Q-12. Tickets to this adults-only event are $45 and include food, wine, and paint-a-bowl activity; bowls will be donated to the Gala.

Paint-a-Bowl on your own schedule at As You Wish Pottery in the Antelope Valley Mall. A $20 donation includes choice of a ceramic bowl, studio fee, paint and supplies, glazing, firing and a personalized message. Bowls must be completed by Sept. 27 and will be donated to SAVES for the Gala.

All proceeds from these events will go to SAVES. Tickets can be purchased online at
