We are looking for all available CCONS members; we need your help to support the 4rd Annual Kentucky Derby in a BIG way!! I am looking for volunteers to help donate their time on Derby Day, Saturday, May 2, 2015 at the House of Blues, located at,329 N Dearborn Street.
We are looking for shifts in 2 hour time blocks from 1:00 – 7:00pm so it won’t be the whole day; I’m hoping to a lot of volunteers. We have had such good turn outs in the past and it has not gone unnoticed by the Lymphoma Research Foundation! We need volunteers to help with the following areas of responsibility: registration, selling raffle tickets, managing the silent auction area, managing the raffle area, silent auction check-out, VIP bag distribution and event tear down.
Please send me an e-mail ASAP if you are interested in volunteering. I have gotten a few volunteers already but we need more to make this another successful year! Please find 2 hours of your time on Saturday May 2, 2015 to help the Lymphoma Research Foundation’s 4th annual Kentucky Derby Day Celebration!
Please email Gina Menyah, CCONS DAL Community Outreach, if you are interested in volunteering! email@example.com
