Bowls Auctioned Off in Annual Food Bank Fundraiser

November 9, 2011 7:00 AM | News

Winnipeg Harvest will auction off an array of originally-crafted bowls on Thursday for its Empty Bowls Celebrity Auction.

Celebrities, artisans, and humanitarians have crafted and signed their own ceramic bowls to be used as a way of raising donations to end hunger.

The gala — to be held at the Delta Winnipeg — raised more than $280,000 last year to help curb hunger in Manitoba.

A few of the celebrity bowls up for auction this year include Don Cherry, Cheech & Chong, Britney Spears and Jerry Seinfeld.

While the gala is sold out, the public can still make a donation by calling (204) 982-3581 or at WinnipegHarvest.org.

Entertainment for the evening will include local YouTube singing sensation Maria Aragon and Sheena Grobb.
