Empty Bowls Were Filled

February 2014, The Empty Bowls Committee of Hope Mission of Carteret County along with the Hope Mission Board, wishes to thank the following individuals and businesses for helping raise over $11,000.  Hope Mission shares a portion of the proceeds with Martha’s Mission as both entities work toward the same goal of feeding the hungry of Carteret County. We also thank the many individuals, who are too numerous to mention, who volunteered in helping to make this event such a success and of course it would not happen without all who came to support the event by purchasing tickets, participating in the 50/50 raffle, and or the silent auction among the daily festivities.DSC_0004
