...a great event.

The Empty Bowls Project of Paducah was a HUGE success! By 4:00 in the afternoon we were out of the 900 bowls that we brought for the day. We are looking forward to next year and already Michael is making plans. Michael gave the Community Kitchen a check for $12,500 dollars. You read that right. That is how much was raised. How exciting is that? Click here to go the Empty Bowls facebook page and you can see the picture of Michael handing over that glorious check to the Community Kitchen. You will need to scroll down through a couple of posts and there it will be. Oh and while you're there become a fan or 'like' it. Whatever it is your supposed to do on that page. Then you can click here to go see the pictures that I took that are on my facebook page. Thanks to everyone who helped from restaurants to glazers. And a special big thank-you to our own beloved Michael for putting together a great event.


  1. Hi, Michael and Victoria,
    You guys inspired me and I'm looking forward to organize an Empty Bowls event here in Brazil! The ceramics department at my university aproved, we just have to arrange it and, of course, start making bowls!
    Congratulations and thanks a lot! You are great!

  2. It warms our hearts to know that there is going to be another Empty Bowls Project starting up somewhere. Michael is a fabulous event organizer. If there is anything that we can do to help, you just let us know.
    Good luck!
