Mugs for Jugs 2011
October 1, 2011
MudFire announces our most important event of the year, a collaboration with artist friends to raise money to help fight breast cancer. On October 1, 2011, we'll launch Mugs for Jugs, an exhibit and benefit sale of handmade ceramic mugs with proceeds donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
This event provides a great opportunity for coffee drinkers to team up with artists to fight this terrible disease, while taking home a piece of handmade American craft for daily enjoyment.
The exhibit and benefit sale will begin online at 10:00 am EST on Saturday, October 1. A reception and kick-off party will be held that night from 5:00 - 9:00 pm in our Atlanta gallery.
Please check back later to view the available artwork. If you would like notification when the mugs are online, please sign up for our gallery newsletter to the left.

More About Mugs for Jugs 2011
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the only breast cancer organization to earn the highest rating from both non-profit watchdogs Charity Navigator and the American Institute of Philanthropy. Over 90% of their budget goes directly to research & awareness programs. We are proud to support their efforts and hopeful about meeting the goal of achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.
Mugs for Jugs is a national invitational exhibit, with over 50 artists accepting our call to join arms in the battle against breast cancer. We are overwhelmed by the enthusiastic support of our artist friends from around the country. MudFire instructor Emily Downey conceived the event and is a key part of the effort to realize it.
The show will present the largest and most significant collection of clay artists in a single exhibit in Atlanta this year.
Each artist has chosen their contribution level to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, with MudFire matching their contribution. On average, 38% of each sale will be donated.
