’s All In Ball gives you the opportunity to see what you are made of.

Dabo's All In Team® Foundation is partnering with Blue Ridge Security Systems to host the third annual All In Ball on Friday, April 13th at the Madren Center Pavilion on the Clemson University campus from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.  The event will raise funds for the foundation’s activities, and one of the items that will be auctioned off is the chance to be an honorary coach at the spring game the following day.

Swinney said this week that the event will be packed with plenty of activities.

“This has been a lot of fun the last couple of years, and we feel like we are making a difference in a lot of different areas,” he said. “We will have a lot of special guests in there. We will have some entertainment, and even a couple of players that will perform this year.”

The two players that will be performing are defensive backs Martin JenkinsMartin Jenkins

“I am pretty familiar with what they are to going to do,” Swinney said of the duo. “They are going to be performing their All In song, and they are fired up about that. There will a couple of other entertainers, and a pretty neat guest speaker that I can't publicize (rumored to be ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit) will be a part of it, too.”

There will even be former Clemson players on hand.

“A lot of former players,” Swinney said. “There are some current NFL guys that will be there. And we have a lot of great auction items, including being an honorary coach the next day. Hopefully, we will have a great turnout and we can see a lot of people there.”

The All In Team Foundation’s mission is to raise awareness of critical education and health issues in order to change lives of people across the state of South Carolina by supporting Breast Cancer Research, The Phoenix Center, Call Me Mister, RISE Program and other significant causes.

Geoff Hart, Channel 4 news anchor will serve as emcee.

Nationally recognized sports personalities like Mark “PACMAN” Packer host of the XM College Sports Nation morning show will be attending.
