CLEARFIELD – The Potter Baseball Team will return to the Clearfield area this summer to help fight hunger.
Potter ball players will help out during Battle of the Bands, a “Jam Out Against Hunger.” The event is being held from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. July 3 at the Clearfield Riverwalk Amphitheatre.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs and to enjoy an evening of music while helping their community.
Potter Baseball will be teaming up with the Joseph & Elizabeth Shaw Public Library, Clearfield Revitalization Corp. (CRC), Clearfield Baseball Association, Trinity United Methodist Church and West Side United Methodist Church of Clearfield to “jam out” against hunger.
According to Main Street Manager Loretta Wagner, the Potter Baseball Team will visit Clearfield for two days during its 32-day tour. The team plays ball games in each town, which are complemented with community service projects. The team will make stops in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and Maryland.
The “Battle of the Bands: Jam Out Against Hunger” will serve as a fundraiser for the “Kitchen of Care” through the West Side United Methodist Church. It will also help the soup kitchen at the Trinity United Methodist Church.
For a $5 donation, attendees will see live performances by four local bands, including the Brothers Maines, Twin Reverb, Temptation Alley and Hell Bent. Admission also gives attendees the chance to vote for their favorite band via their donation canister. The band raising the most funds will win the Battle of the Bands event.
The Potter Baseball Team, along with several church organizations, will also provide a venue of light refreshments and a basket raffle at the Clearfield Riverwalk during the event. All proceeds will be donated back to fight hunger.
“We are encouraging people to take part in the Battle of the Bands: Jam Out Against Hunger,” Wagner said. “They can donate or simply come out and support the cause.”
Potter head baseball coach Jeff Potter concurred, saying that: “This is a great community, and we look forward to returning to Clearfield to take on this project.”
Wagner also said that the Potter Baseball Team represents everything that the CRC stands for, which is especially bringing out the best in a small-town community.
Pastor John Baney added that the Trinity United Methodist Church is looking forward to partnering to help continue its ministries of compassion and sharing God’s love in and with the local community.
