Slideshow: Full house for Empty Bowls

Empty Bowls fundraiserUW-Green Bay’s Art Agency student group hosted its annual Empty Bowls fundraiser Wednesday, April 3 in the Cloud Commons of the University Union. Students and faculty make handmade ceramic bowls, which are then filled with chili or soup donated by local restaurants. Attendees pay a $10 donation and choose their own handmade bowl, which is theirs to keep. All of the proceeds from this year’s event will be donated to Kingdom Come, an Oconto Falls food bank. Local restaurants donating soup or chili for this year’s Empty Bowls event include Kavarna, Titletown Brewing, Regatta 220, Kroll’s East and Hagemeister Park. As the photos show, turnout and participation were excellent.
