Bowls for Babies

Bowls for Babies

Posted: Updated:

A deal too good to pass up brought dozens of hungry philanthropists to Minot to warm their tummy's with all the soup they could eat.

Today was the seventh annual Bowls for Babies event.

It's held to spread the word about the

importance of healthy, full-term pregnancies for women.

Local businesses sponsored the event by painting and glazing homemade bowls, and donating their own soup to fill them.

Anyone who wanted to fill their stomachs with some tasty soups simply paid a flat fee of 15 dollars.

Which went to a purchase of a homemade bowl, from there it was all you could eat.

Bowls for Babies is a small branch of the March of Dimes organization, which focuses on how to prevent birth defects and pre-mature babies.

The chairman says that it's always exciting to see so many different businesses come together for one good cause.

(Tom Rafferty, Chairman, Bowls for Babies) "It helps bring the community together. We've got medical professionals that have pitched in to this event, we've got all kinds of different businesses, we've had elementary schools paint bowls.. It creates a lot of awareness for the March of Dimes."

Today's event raised $10,000 for babies in North Dakota.
