Record Turnout for RiverArts’ Annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser


Chestertown’s 9th Annual Empty Bowls, sponsored by the RiverArts Clay Studio, is pleased to announce that it raised $5,000 in funds  to benefit the Kent County Food Pantry. This popular community event was held April 17 at the Christ United Methodist Church in Chestertown.

For the price of a $25 ticket, $10 for students,  guests enjoyed a meal of soup, bread, and dessert in a keepsake handmade pottery bowl. The Clay Studio potters  created the bowls, which are a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world.

This event was sponsored by RiverArts, Bookplate, Evergrain Bread Company, Figg’s Ordinary, Germaine’s, Carla Massoni Gallery, Mimi’s Closet, Peaceful World Enterprise, and Welcome Home.
