The Loudoun Chapter of the Virginia Women Attorney’s Association presented Loudoun Interfaith Relief with a check for $3,400 as the net proceeds of the chapter's successful Empty Bowls Fundraiser.
The presentation took place on March 21 at the Loudoun County Bar Association luncheon. The association ran a food drive before the presentation with a large response from the legal community in Loudoun.
The recent Empty Bowls Fundraiser coincided with holiday events in Leesburg on Dec. 10, 2011. The fundraiser is an annual event where local potters hand-throw bowls and donate them to VWAA-Loudoun.
The chapter offers the bowls for sale to the general public with soup and bread donated by Tuscarora Mill Restaurant. VWAA-Loudoun Treasurer and VWAA's Immediate Past President Chris Mougin-Boal organized the event, which, this year, included high school singers from Loudoun County.
Volunteers from the chapter work in various capacities to make this a very successful event. Bonnie Inman, Executive Director of Loudoun Interfaith Relief, thanked VWAA-Loudoun and the LCBA for their efforts to fight hunger in the community at the presentation.
