On Saturday, we went to an Empty Bowls lunch to raise money and awareness for local hunger. The event was held in a high school gym. Ten dollars got you a handmade ceramic bowl to take home (some made by artists, some by kids, etc.), a bowl of soup and a breadstick from one of about ten different restaurants, and live entertainment. It was a big success.
There was also a raffle. I think next year the cause might like to raffle a handknit lace wrap in, say, Sea Silk, don't you agree?
