Empty Bowls


If you happen to live in my hometown, Daytona Beach, FL, then I hope you can make it to this Friday's Empty Bowls Event, a silent auction held at my alma mater, Mainland High School. The project, started in 1990, raises awareness for world hunger by serving a simple meal of soup and bread in handmade bowls. The auction component raises money for organizations that fight hunger — in this case, Halifax Urban Ministries.

I have donated several signed works, including prints, a Young Allies issue, and an original page from Amazing Spider-Man #577, pictured above.

The event will be held this Friday, December 4th, from 6-8PM. Further information can be found here.

  2. Paolo! Great contribution to a great cause.

    That Spidey in the doorjam is one of my favorite renditions of the character and the reason I searched you out in the first place.

    I need to find a proxy auctioneer...

  6. Melanie, it's good to hear from you (it's been a while). I hear you helped out quite a bit with the event as well, so thank you!

    Narco, I'm glad you said "almost." And I'm glad you liked the issue.

    Jim and Carolyn, thank you so much! I thought it was a secret, but I guess it is no longer. My mom told me last week and I was so happy to hear it's in good hands.
