empty bowl luncheon - wonderful fund raiser
At the Marriott yesterday, we ran over to attend and support the Salvation Army's annual Empty Bowl Luncheon. I think this is the 14th year or so. It's certainly grown each year. And, this has to be one of the best "deals" for contributors I've run across. For $12 in advance ($15 at the door), you get to choose from 40 or so local restaurants selection of soup. You can try one of each if you want. I wasn't really hungry. Tried three soups. They were all really good. My fav was a she crab soup that was as good as I've had in Beaufort, Hilton Head or even Charleston. And, to top it off, on the way out, each attendee gets a hand made, glazed little bowl, made throughout the year by local artists, and many new bowl artists. I'm really blown away with this wonderful event.
