Academy of Fine Arts Hosts 'Empty Bowls' Fundraiser for Lynchburg's Daily Bread

Lynchburg, VA - The Academy of Fine Arts in Lynchburg hosted the 5th annual 'Empty Bowls' fundraiser Saturday.

Local potters and area studios donated hundreds of bowls for the event that benefits Lynchburg's Daily Bread.

For $15, guests got to choose their own handmade ceramic bowl and enjoy bread and soup donated by area restaurants and community members.
