Empty Bowl fundraiser a success

Dear Editor:
The Empty Bowl event held in Braham on March 9 was a community-wide effort to raise funds for our Braham Area Food Shelf.

The community responded with generous donations making it a very successful event. Around $7,000 was raised for the food shelf through the Empty Bowl and additional individual, organizational and business donations showing great support for our food shelf.

Thanks to the Braham Area Schools for providing wonderful musical entertainment, making the fun clay bowls, and even assisting in the setting up the center.

Thanks, also, to the Event Center for making the delicious soups and to all the volunteers working to make things go smoothly.

All funds given to the food shelf during March and ending April 10 will have a percentage matched by Minnesota Food Share. If anyone would like to make a donation, it can be sent to Braham Area Food Shelf, P.O. Box 245, Braham, MN 55006.

Our second Empty Bowl has already been scheduled. It will be held on March 15, 2018. Mark your calendars.
