Empty Bowls 2011!

Friday was the annual Second Harvest Food Bank Empty Bowls event and it was very well attended.  If you are unfamiliar with the event, you pay $25 and you pick a bowl from a very crowded table.  You take it to the counter where they wrap it for you and put it in a bag.  Next, you go through the silent auction tables and bid on some wonderful items, then it's on to the buffet line and you eat lunch.  During lunch several speakers share the milestones Second Harvest Food Bank has achieved in the previous year and thank all the sponsors and donors.  And, if all that wasn't enough, there are drawings for door prizes.

Thanks to all the sponsors and donors for a wonderful time and thanks to all the potters for making and donating the great bowls. 

Most of all, thanks to Second Harvest Food Bank for all the amazing things they do to feed the hungry in our community.
