Glenville State University Department of Fine Arts to hold fireworks fundraiser starting June 24

GLENVILLE – The Glenville State University Department of Fine Arts will again be operating the TNT® Fireworks stand at Foodland Plaza in Glenville this year as a fundraiser.

The stand is scheduled to open Friday, June 24 and will operate through Tuesday, July 5. Faculty and students from the department will staff the stand, and money from sales will go toward the Friends of Fine Arts fund.

“Friends of Fine Arts is a fund that we use to help pay for student enrichment activities,” explained Dr. Jason Barr, Chair of the Department of Fine Arts. “It helps us to bring in clinicians, artists, performing musicians, and the like for our students to attend and learn from.”

During selling seasons, TNT Fireworks offers the use of their stands or tents for fundraising purposes. This is the second year the GSU Department of Fine Arts has had the opportunity to operate the stand in Glenville during Independence Day sales.

“As always, the Department of Fine Arts thanks everyone for their support!” Barr added.
