Near Record Crowds At Empty Bowl Event

Near Record Crowds

At Empty Bowl Event

Bowls and soup were going fast as over 180 people in the first half hour streamed through the doors of the Christ Church in Cooperstown for the annual Empty Bowls event which benefits the local food pantry. Hungry crowds came to try the many different soups offered by 10 area restaurants and  seven individuals who in all created over 40 gallons of soup. Above, Amy Zoltick serves a bowl of curried butternut squash soup with wild rice edamame to Stephanie Adams. At right, event organizer Kathy Chase enlists helps from Diane Detrinis, to refill a crockpot with her Thai chicken and rice soup. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Madeline Walker, a volunteer for the Save the Tails Ciders & Ales fundraiser for Super Heroes in Ripped Jeans, pours a cup of Ommegang’s 3 Philosophers brew for Steve Hickey while her friend Jonathan Stein watches. The event, held at My Father’s Place in Oneonta drew a large crowd, with local breweries and cideries offering ales and ciders with exotic flavors, such as a bourbon-infused brew by Ommegang in it and a coconut-and-rose hard cider by Awestruck. The fundraiser hopes to help raise money for a new shelter to help the Super Heroes continue their mission to offer low-cost spay and neuter programs, rescue feral cats and provide pet owners with supplies.  (Jennifer Hill/AllOTSEGO.com)
