BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Thousands of handmade bowls were on display Sunday at an event raising money for a good cause.
The Annual Empty Bowls Project was held at Buffalo State College in celebration of its tenth year.
College students organized bowl-making projects made by art teachers, art students and local artists among others.
Sara Qureshi, Co-chairperson of the Empty Bowls Project said, "We have bowls from preschoolers all the way up to professional artists. So let's go up to 70 years old! Anyone can make the bowl, it doesn't even have to be an artist -- teachers, Girl Scouts, all sorts of people donate the bowls."
Proceeds from the event will go towards the Food Bank of Western New York and Friends of the Night People. Most of the bowls cost anywhere from $5 to $15 dollars.
The fundraiser was held at the Burchfield Penney Art Center. In past years, the project has raised about $6,000.
