CCONS Needs Volunteers!
CCONS is assisting Culinary Care
(an organization that provides complimentary meals to cancer patients and their families)
in their "Play It Forward Tennis Tournament"
Volunteers Needed for Saturday, July 2
Northwestern University Evanston Vandy Christie Tennis Center
This will be a fun-filled weekend event with tournament play from Thursday through Saturday, but volunteers are needed for Saturday only from 7am to 2pm. Various duties include setup, registration, information stations, water stations, and a possible CCONS booth with screening/prevention information!
If you are unable to stay for the entire event, we can partner you with other volunteers to split shifts. This is a wonderful opportunity to partner with Culinary Care, which "feeds the fight against cancer" by feeding cancer patients and their families.
If you are a tennis player, support this wonderful cause by signing up to play at culinarycare.org/tennis
There is also a need for ball girls and boys, so please spread the word to your friends and family!
This is a great family friendly event!
If you would like to volunteer on Saturday, or have questions, please contact Gina Menyah at firstname.lastname@example.org
