Empty Bowls Sale Nets $3K

The Loudoun Chapter of the Virginia Women Attorneys Association’s Empty Bowls sale on Saturday during Leesburg’s Flower and Garden Festival raised $3,000 to support Loudoun Hunger Relief.

By early afternoon, all 135 donated clay bowls—created by area crafters—had been sold. Since the project started in 2009, organizers have held five sales and raised more than $14,000 for the food pantry.

Christine Mougin-Boal, who leads the project, thanked the amateur potters associated with Monkeytown Pottery, who made the majority of the bowls and, Amy Oliver, a professional potter who supports the project every year by offering some of her bowls and firing all of these bowls.
