Another successful Empty Bowls fundraiser is behind us, setting new records for both attendance and contributions.
This annual event raises money for the Highline and White Center Food Banks by accepting donations for a hand-made bowl filled with soup.
When the dust settled and the soup ladles were put away 1,150 attendees contributed $18,400 versus last year’s 1,014 attendees and $16,300.
Here’s a list of the sponsors, soup contributors and others that made the event possible:
