November 18, 2018
Nearly 1,300 guests will attend this premiere event featuring a champagne reception, luncheon, extensive raffle, and professional fashion show.
Our friends at St. Jude have requested our help to ensure this event runs smoothly. Please note that volunteers for this event must be 18 years of age or older.
Volunteer Needs: Help is needed in a number of different capacities including Set-up, Registration, Raffle Sellers/Raffle Floaters, Greeters and Check-Out.
The St. Jude IT team will train all of the raffle/registration volunteers on how to use the touchpads and software in an online seminar prior to the event and will provide another training opportunity before the shifts start.
**Each assignment is broken down into two shifts. We would be happy to have you for both shifts, but please note it is a long day and we rely on your commitments to ensure a successful event!**
There will be different raffle responsibilities depending on what shift you choose to work.
Shift 1: 8:15am – 12:30pm
The first shift of Raffle Ticket Sellers and Raffle floaters will stay in assigned areas or float amongst the event to sell raffle tickets using touchpads.
Shift 2: 12pm-4pm
Second shift raffle volunteers will be continuing to sell raffle tickets until Grand Raffle closes at 1:30pm. Volunteers will then be assisting with packaging up and distributing raffle items to the winners. Some volunteers may be asked to transport larger packages to the entrance where winners will pick up with their vehicle (carts will be available).
Registration volunteers will help register our guests upon their arrival using our St. Jude online registration system on laptops. This will include verifying and entering donor contact and payment information.
Check-out volunteers will be checking out all raffle winners and ensuring that the correct paperwork is filled out in order for them to claim their raffle prize. This will also be done on our St. Jude online registration system on laptops.
Shift 1: 8:15am – 12pm
Greeters and floaters during the morning shift will be greeting and directing guests to registration upon their arrival to the event. They will also be provided a map of the main ballroom and asked to help guests find their correct tables when the doors open. We ask the greeters and floaters remain flexible because that tasks may change depending on the flow of event.
Shift 2: 12-4pm
Greeters and floaters during the afternoon shift will be guarding raffle items and communicating to guests that they will need to check-out before receiving their package as well as directing guests to check-out. We ask the greeters and floaters remain flexible because that tasks may change depending on the flow of event.
We are happy to provide lunch during your shift.
