Thank you community painting participants! Between the three community painting events on November 17th, December 8th, and December 20th, we painted over 180 bowls and raised $2,837! We had all ages come out, from babies to elderly couples and everything in between. People came as individuals, as friends, or as families. We even had participants from last year who came again. This is an activity that all kinds of people can enjoy, and everyone that came had a good time. It's a great opportunity to participate in the arts at the same time as
making a difference.
Thank you community for making the first ever Wenatchee Empty Bowls a great success! We couldn't have done it without all the support of those who came and participated, and the 30+ volunteers who helped out at the various events. We'd also like to extend a special thank you to our sponsors, who gave so generously in support of our project, so that we could give all of the proceeds to the food banks to fight hunger in our area. Thank you all very much for coming, and we hope to see you all again next year!
