In The Beginning…
The Craftsmen’s Classic organization was founded 35 years ago by the Gilmore family of Greensboro, NC. Clyde Gilmore, a jewelry maker, wanted to create a “family” of artists and craftsmen, nationwide, that could stage indoor festivals showcasing their totally original works and interact one-on-one with the public. The first such event, the “granddaddy” and prototype of all the others on today’s schedule, was the Christmas Classic, Thanksgiving Weekend, at the Greensboro Coliseum.
There are now 10 Craftsmen’s Classics held annually and throughout the year in Columbia and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Richmond, Roanoke and Chantilly, Virginia and Greensboro, North Carolina. Produced by Gilmore Enterprises, Inc., headquartered in the city of Greensboro, the organization is managed by the late founder’s son, Executive Director Clyde Gilmore III, one of the crafts and fine arts industry’s most acclaimed and award-winning promoters. The Classic events have been named more often than those of any other promoter to the “200 Best” list by the prestigious Sunshine Artist Magazine and have been named often as “Top 20 Events” by the Southeast Tourism Society. Gilmore can also calculate success by the longevity of the Classics — most of which are in their 15th to 25th year or more — and by the tens of thousands of visitors that eagerly anticipate them and attend, year after year.
The hallmark of the shows, from the beginning, is creative excellence and absolute originality in every specialty. Clyde and his wife, Tami, design each Classic with a fine balance of crafts and fine art and the specialties within those areas. There is careful thought given to a balance of traditional and contemporary works as well. More than 6,000 of the country’s finest artisans are members; depending on the size of the facility, there are between 300 and 550 participants in a Craftsmen’s Classic show.

ABOUT PIN CANCER™
Pin Cancer™ seeks to become how every level of the wrestling community can fight cancer and raise awareness, together.
To give wrestlers of all ages and avenue to inspire awareness and raise funds for cancer care and research.
Pin Cancer™ was founded in 2011 by a former wrestler Dan Tramontozzi after finding out his mother (Margie Tramontozzi) was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer.
What started out as a small grassroots campaign in Northern, NJ quickly turned into a nationally recognized organization.
Since inception, Pin Cancer™ has united 25,000+ supporters and has raised more than $2 million in donations.
Pin Cancer™ gives wrestlers two ways to get involved throughout each year.
The first one is our Wrestle for a Cure™ Campaign. This is a season long fundraiser where wrestlers create their own fundraising page online, and collect donations throughout the wrestling season. Teams also have the ability to create team pages, as well as host an event to promote their fundraiser. This campaign is launched each October, and ends in March. Wrestlers are also rewarded with PC gear based on the amount they raise through the season.
The second way to get involved is to sign up and compete at the Pin Cancer Nationals™. Here, wrestlers sign up and then claim a fundraising page. As they start raising donations and hit milestones in their fundraising before the tournament, they earn some awesome gear from our partner TERRA GRAPPL’R, including exclusive wrestling shoes.

Pin Cancer Ambassadors
