Bowled over by bids

The fourth annual BCLC Empty Bowls auction raised nearly $30,000 for the Kamloops Food Bank.

The event, held at the recently re-opened and renovated Delta Hotel Kamloops by Marriott (formerly Hotel 540), sees celebrity-signed artisan bowls auctioned off, with a silent auction of other items also raising money for the cause.

The Empty Bowls event also featured appetizers and local craft beer from The Noble Pig, wine from Monte Creek Ranch Winery and entertainment by local musician Cathi Marshall.
