- Thanks to all of you who came out to the 9th Annual Empty Bowls Event! This was our best and busiest event ever, we sold out of bowls halfway through. The raffle was new this year and went over well, we intend to expand on that just a little for next year. Many people were walking around with paper cranes made by Hikari Inaoka compliments to anyone who bought a bowl. He also sold origami and contributed to this fundraiser. We raised the most money ever too, making this year’s contribution to Angel Network’s Food Program the largest we’ve made. We have plans to make 100 more bowls than usual next year in anticipation of the growth of the Mud Club’s Empty Bowls Event. Hope to see you all next year at our 10th Anniversary of Mud Club’s Empty Bowls Event.
