Sponsored by Food Lion Feeds and the CRVA (Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority), Empty Bowls is an event designed to raise awareness and funds in our battle to end hunger in the Metrolina region. Potters of all ages, skill levels and approaches to clay will donate hundreds of handmade ceramic bowls. The bowl then serves as a reminder that someone's bowl is always empty and that we need to continue our efforts to end hunger in our community.

Event Includes: A demonstration by Clayworks, silent auction, music, food, a GoPlaySave coupon book and over 500 pottery bowls to choose from!

Our Event Host: Maureen O'Boyle, WBTV News
