Pottery teachers, staff, and students donated their time and talents to make bowls for The Empty Bowl Brunch. Visitors purchased a $10 food ticket and received a donated bowl.
Volunteers served patrons soup, chili, bread and beverages.
Among other recipients of the fundraiser:
-- Vietnam Vets, $600
-- MVAA outreach scholarship fund, $1000
The brunch has raised more than $10,000 for local charities since its first event in 2002.
