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.
