VICTORIA, Texas - A press release from Victoria College on their Victoria Empty Bowls event:
Local agencies fighting hunger throughout the Crossroads region recently received a check of $28,000 from Victoria Empty Bowls, an annual event at Victoria College that raises proceeds to benefit food banks and assistance organizations.
Victoria College students and area potters create bowls throughout the year for Victoria Empty Bowls. The most recent event, which was the 15th anniversary for Victoria Empty Bowls, was held on Feb. 10 at Victoria College’s Student Center.
The $28,000 was split between the Victoria Christian Assistance Ministry, Food Bank of the Golden Crescent, Christ’s Kitchen and Meals on Wheels Victoria.
“Empty Bowls provides an opportunity for our community to come together not only to enjoy the festivities of the day, but also to collaboratively support the mission of several nonprofits in our community,” said Robin Cadle, president/CEO of Food Bank of the Golden Crescent. “This event provides much-needed funds to these organizations in our community as they work together to assist those in need in our community.”
The event also raises scholarship funds for Victoria College visual arts students.
