Fun for the whole family!

The Arts Center of Clemson and the Clemson Fire Department are teaming up for this fundraiser. The Arts Center is raising money for a clay studio kiln and the fire department is raising money for the Jeff Chavis House at the JMS Burn Center in Augusta which is the facility where
Clemson burn patients are treated.

There will be plenty of bowl food, sides, and desserts including chili from Clemson's Wendy's. Additional alcoholic beverages will be available along with free non-alcoholic beverages.

Entertainment will include music from Jim Morgan on guitar, banjo and mandolin, a chance to speak with firefighters and see the fire equipment.

Volunteer opportunities range from administrative tasks, special event preparation, class assistants and even long-term internships. Please be advised that we may not have available opportunities in all areas at all times.
