ALBANY, GA (WALB) - For the sixth consecutive year, the Empty Bowls event is happening in Albany.
The Albany Area Arts Council and SOWEGA Council on Aging host the gathering at 11:00AM at the Civic Center in Albany.
"Empty Bowls is a joint outreach," said Izzie Sadler, Development Director of the SOWEGA Council on Aging. "It is a project designed to fight hunger personalized by artists on a community level."
Patrons can enjoy a variety of soups from local restaurants, and take home a handcrafted bowl made by local artists.
This event is a fundraiser for both non-profit organizations.
Response to this event has been very positive, and the $20 tickets are sold out, Sadler said.
Over 400 people are expected to be at the event today.
