Special thanks to our presenting sponsors Food Lion Feeds and the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority. This year, we are sending special thanks to each of our wonderful sponsors who, even though the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, agreed to have their sponsorship dollars stand to help us feed so many in need during this uncertain time.

Tremendous thank you to each of the potters who created all of the beautiful bowls for the 2020 event. Without these creative and talented groups and individuals, Empty Bowls would truly not be possible. Their continued partnership is appreciated so very much. Special thanks to our friends at GoPlaySave Charlotte for donating the coupon books that are also hugely popular. We distributed coupon books and pottery bowls to those guests that requested them. We worked hard to insure that one component of that event, the silent auction, was still available to our wonderful guests and other Food Bank supporters. Our silent auction would not have been possible without the generous support of each of the companies, organizations, and individuals who secured and donated items - a huge thank you to each of them.

We're happy to share that, thanks to your generous bidding and donations, Empty Bowls 2020 raised almost $94,000 for our neighbors in need!
