This bowl event sells out quickly

December 4, 2008 

The Empty Bowls project sold out of its 500 bowls in 50 minutes Wednesday at Transylvania University's Morlan Gallery, the school said in a press release.

By 4 p.m., all bowls were sold and the project had raised $6,638, a record for the sale, for local charity Community Action. Over the last eight years, the Morlan Gallery bowl sales have raised nearly $24,000 for local agencies such as Moveable Feast, the YMCA Spousal Abuse Center and the Hope Center.

"There was no doubt in my mind that we would sell all of our bowls, I just didn't expect to sell almost all of them in the first hour," said gallery director Andrea Fisher.
