Participants got to take the pottery bowls made by Cariboo Potters Guild members home with them. Approximately 300 bowls of soup were sold at $15 a bowl. Alley Katz donated the soup for the project, and potters, artists, weavers and spinners also donated items for a silent auction. Final figures on the fundraising effort are not yet available.
