After adding up all of the money raised at the annual Empty Bowls fundraiser, El Camino Homeless Organization (ECHO) says the organization brought in more than $40,000.
Approximately 600 people attended the event at Atascadero Bible Church on April 25, 2019.
For a $25 ticket, attendees received a meal of soup and bread and a handmade ceramic bowl to take home. This year, there were both lunch and dinner options.
The money raised will go toward ECHO‘s homeless shelter and services.
