This past Saturday, a few INK staffers were fortunate to attend and support a wonderful community fundraising event.
Empty Bowls is an annual Milwaukee event in support of area food pantries. The group sells donated, hand-crafted and painted bowls to adults and children at $20 and $10, respectively. Buyers then enter soup lines supplied by local restaurants.
In addition to supporting the cause, patrons experience the reality of waiting in line for a bowl of soup.
Unsurprisingly, the event was a huge success raising over $51,000!
It felt great to support Milwaukee's local food pantries and I very much look forward to getting more involved with next year's event.
I extend my congratulations to all involved.
