Filling empty bowls

Los Alamos residents choose treasures to take home during the annual Empty Bowls Project fundraiser, a benefit for Self Help, Inc. The fundraiser netted approximately $12,000 for the nonprofit, which provides consultation and advocacy, emergency financial assistance and seed money grants to residents of Los Alamos, northern Santa Fe, Rio Arriba and Taos counties. A number of local businesses support the event by donating bowls for community groups to paint, glazing and firing the bowls, providing soup and bread for a luncheon and donating items for a silent auction.
