We attended our first Empty Bowl benefit for Hospitality House yesterday evening, and it was a great success. I’m not used to counting crowds but there must have been at least 300 people at the 5:30 PM seating, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the 7 PM seating did as well.
Scores of volunteers (potters, servers, cleaners, dishwashers, hosts and hostesses, musicians) all contributed to the general sense of fellowship and good spirits.
This is Nevada County at its best, reaching deep into its pockets even in this time of severe recession, and giving generously.
And everyone went home with a beautiful bowl!
Here are ours!
