Volunteers needed! Many Hands Make Light Work, Yo!
There are tons of ways to help out, at all levels of commitment. WE NEED: Volunteers for load-in Friday. People to help set up sound, lights, auction tables and decorate the hall Saturday 12-5pm. Volunteers during the event for check-in and ticket sales, merch. sales and bartending. People to bring treats for the dessert table. Volunteers to help close the auction and cash the winners out. AND a clean up crew for the very end.
Even if you can give only 1/2 hour, every minute helps! Volunteer here

Every person who comes needs to be registered and have a bidder number for the auction whether or not they plan to bid. ENTRY IS FREE! Bring (and pre-register) your friends and family!
