Drumroll please.

The final total for the sixth annual Empty Bowls Project for Mayfield/Graves County Food Pantry is $13,790. This brings our six year total to $78,655.

This is amazing and is dearly needed by the food pantry. I am so deeply grateful to every person who helped with this event.

The businesses that sponsored bowls, the restaurants that graciously gave of their time and food, the radio stations and newspaper that advertised for us, every person who handed out flyers, anyone who worked to make the event possible, the people who bought tickets, and the people who lifted this event up in prayer, each and every one is a vital piece of the puzzle and no one is any less important than any other. I cannot thank you enough for making this a great success. The amount raised speaks volumes about what a caring community that we live in. When you dine at any of the restaurants or shop with any of the sponsors please tell them thank you for participating.

We are already working and preparing for next year's event. Mark your calendars for May 2, 2020. I hope to see you there.

And as always, the praise and glory and honor for this success goes to God. Without His blessing it could not happen.
