10 years of Empty Bowls
It’s hard to believe that it has been 10 years since Paula Perkins and Leslie Schaffner brought Empty Bowls to Wichita Falls. With every year the event has changed but has remained steadfast with the goal of filling empty bowls in our community.
With the uncertainty of the Covid-19 pandemic and the extensive planning involved, we decided to take Empty Bowls virtual for its 10th anniversary from November 26 to December 9. We were unsure about how we could translate a soup tasting event to an all-virtual event, but with supporters like you, we shouldn’t have worried at all! With a collective $9,524 made in bowl sales alone and over $40,000 from our sponsors, we are elated to say that Empty Bowls 2021 was a resounding success!
We want to thank our sponsors, artists, volunteers, restaurants, supporters, and YOU for helping us ring in 10 YEARS of Empty Bowls. We can’t wait to see what 2022 will bring!
