The 16th annual YWCA Empty Bowls fundraiser was held at The Venue on George Street over the lunch hour Friday in support of the YWCA Nourish program in Peterborough.
For $40 supporters chose from hundreds of ceramic and wooden bowls — crafted and donated by local artisans with Kawartha Potters’ Guild, Kawartha Woodturners Guild and Artisans Centre Peterborough — and enjoyed a variety of food prepared and donated by local restaurants.
