The 2018 Workhouse Ceramics Program Ice Cream Social Fundraiser will occur on June 2nd, 2018 from 12pm-4pm on the Workhouse Quad. The event involves the sale of hand-made ice cream bowls created by our students, ceramic artists and instructors. Participants pay $20 per bowl and are given Ice Cream and toppings (included in purchase price), listen to live Jazz and Rock music by Eric Highsmith, a performance by the Great Zucchini and visit with our local firefighters from Crosspointe Fire Station #41. Watch other on-site artist demonstrations, buy a raffle ticket for $5 to win a gift certificate for a Ceramics program visiting artist workshop, and participate in a Scavenger Hunt to win a $25 gift certificate.
The event is fully sponsored by local businesses such as Hershey’s Ice Cream and Food, Giant Food, and Squisito Pizza & Pasta. It involves over 40 ceramics program volunteers and all items and services (ice cream, band, etc.) are provided pro-bono for the event. Each participating business can promote their businesses by distributing literature, etc. Attendance has averaged over 800 people per year and funds raised each year have averaged over $12,000 for the Ceramics Program.
