I recently donated two bowls to this event in a nearby suburb..
It seems it went well and they sold out!
The idea is based on the Empty Bowls concept where people come to an event and buy a bowl of food and both the food and the bowls are donated and all the money goes to a selected charity, and the people get to take the bowl home to reuse.
These have been running around the world for some time now. The next one I know of in Australia will be in Perth WA in June 2019.
If you are over that way check out more details on their Facebook page:
