Empty Bowl

My wife and I spent Friday night down in Castle Rock at the 7th annual Empty Bowl event. It’s a really cool charity event supporting the Women’s Center & Family Outreach Center. The jist is this; local potters (those who make pottery) create bowls, lots and lots of bowls. Get it ’empty bowl’. Supporters pay $35 to attend, and enjoy soup, lots and lots of soup, provided by local restaurants and diners. Each attendee gets to pick from all the bowls created, this year that was 1,800 bowls.

Proceeds from the tickets, as well as the sale of remaining bowls at the end of the night and the silent auction that went on during the dinner go towards the WCFOC, which is a good thing since domestic violence is a big deal and big problem in Douglas County.

I meant to mention this event before it happened, but turns out they sold out anyway, so you’ll just have to do it next year. It’s a great cause to be involved with and the soups were darn tasty!

For more info, here’s some write ups on the event.
