Empty Bowls fundraiser raises more than $1,700

The Art Agency student organization raised $1,765 for Paul’s Pantry in under three hours and completely sold out of bowls and soup at its annual Empty Bowls fundraiser on April 5. UW-Green Bay 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 — theirs to keep. Local restaurants donating soup or chili for this year’s Empty Bowls event include Kavarna, Titletown Brewing Company, Golden Corral and Hagemiester Park. Art Agency is a student organization that connects art students, networks with visiting artists and engages in related community service projects and charitable events.
