Heller Events Furman University

Heller Service Corps sponsors four major events during each academic year. Whether you're a student, faculty or staff member, you can support our causes and make a difference in your community. Find an event that matches your interests:

Dance Marathon

Date: Saturday, Oct. 17
Time: Noon
Place: Timmons Arena
Event Director: Jonathan Vandenberg

Support our local chapter of Children's Miracle Network by participating in our Dance Marathon. By pledging to dance for up to 12 hours, students raise funds for Greenville Children's Hospital, our region's only full-service hospital dedicated to children. With performances from the Furman Dance Company and guest speakers from Greenville Health System, this event is a great way to impact children in our community.

Fall Fest

Date: Saturday, Oct. 31
Time: 1 p.m.
Place: E-Field

Volunteer at our annual carnival. Every year, we welcome close to 1,000 children to our campus for an afternoon of carnival activities. Help us run one of these activities or escort kids across campus for trick-or-treating in Furman's residence halls.

Holiday Giving Tree

Celebrate the holiday season by giving back. Each year, we place a tree in the Trone Student Center that is decorated with gift tags. Each tag includes a gift request from a family in need that we received from one of our 50 agency partners. Our students, faculty and staff can choose a gift tag from the tree, and help a family celebrate the holiday season.

Exceptional Adults Valentine's Day Dance

Date: Feb. 9
Time: 7 p.m.
Place: Younts Conference Center

Beginning in the early 1990s, our Exceptional Adults Valentine's Day Dance has evolved into one of our organization's most prominent events. Our students host the dance for adults with special needs in the Greenville area.
