Empty Bowls

Piedmont Federal sponsored a table at the annual Empty Bowl event on April 24th. The price of a ticket buys a soup, salad, dessert and the opportunity to select a pottery bowl. Ric Wagner and Wanda Merschel  were among the  celebrity servers. The event raised more than $83,000.00 the equivalent of more than 581,000 meals!
