Winnipeg Harvest's Empty Bowl Gala

Winnipeg Harvest’s Empty Bowls Gala was a huge success on Tuesday night at the Delta Winnipeg, raising more than $235,000.

More than 500 guests enjoyed gourmet soups and fancy breads, while bidding on bowls signed by Hollywood’s biggest names. Singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen‘s bowl sold for $2500, the highest bid of the evening. Many celebrities hand decorated bowls for the auction, assisting Winnipeg Harvest in their efforts to feed the hungry and raise awareness about poverty issues.
