The Cariboo Potters Guild members hand-made almost 300 bowls for their Empty Bowls project to raise funds for the Salvation Army in Williams Lake. The potters partnered with Alley Katz Bistro on Empty Bowls day to sell the bowls with a bowl of soup and bun donated by the restaurant for the cause. Between the soup bowl sales and a silent art auction held at the same time the Empty Bowls project this year raised $4,495 for the Salvation Army.
