Hot on the Arts to feature local performers
TJ Arts will present a new summer event, Hot on the Arts, at 7 p.m. June 23 at Community College of Allegheny County South Campus Theatre.

The event will raise money for arts scholarships in the West Jefferson Hills School District and to introduce a new community theater event to the South Hills. "Hot on the Arts integrates stage professionals with students and graduates from our own community," Karen Suszynski, TJ Arts founder and chairwoman, said.
Proceeds will benefit three scholarships to Thomas Jefferson seniors and the STArts Program, which provides performing arts classes to students of artistic promise and financial need. Hot on the Arts is co-sponsored by CCAC South Campus Theatre.
