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 auction tables and decorate the hall Saturday 11-4pm. 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
