HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — The Pottery Place and United Way of the River Cities have joined for a unique Marshall University football-themed fundraiser.

The Huntington location of The Pottery Place will sell 50 special edition ceramic footballs with “Go Herd 2012” on each football. The pieces will be numbered one to 50, and customers who purchase a football will be able to paint it in the store.

Each football costs $85, and proceeds will go to United Way of the River Cities.

“We are very excited to partner with The Pottery Place on this special project,” said Scott Neill, United Way director of resource development. “We encourage Marshall fans to purchase a football for themselves or for a loved one during the holidays. You have to act fast because once the 50 footballs are gone, there aren’t any more. These pieces will be great additions to fans’ collections.”

Pottery Place employees will paint an additional football that will be signed by the 2012 Marshall University Thundering Herd football team. This piece will be auctioned off at the end of the season.
