Please consider helping out ARC for their annual Gala held on 2/9. If you can help, please contact Michelle at her info down below. Please mention you're part of Good Deeds.
THANK YOU for your email. The Arc Greater Twin Cities is hosting its 6th annual Gala on Saturday, February 9th. This year’s event focuses on The Arc's advocacy efforts around abuse prevention of individuals with disabilities. Without your partnership, many individuals with disabilities are unable to access needed services to live, learn, work, and play in our community. That is why we need your help.
Below is a list of volunteer opportunities. Any assistance would be appreciated. I hope to hear from you soon on what tasks individuals from Good Deeds Society might be interested in. Thank you.
The event is Saturday, February 9th, 2013 at the:
Hyatt Regency Hotel
1300 Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis, MN 55403
Event runs from 5:30pm – 11:30pm and is as follows:
5:30 - 7:30pm-- cocktails, appetizers, silent auction
7:30 – 10:30pm—dinner, program, live auction
10:30pm– 11:30pm—check out of auction items, mix and mingle
Volunteer assistance needed on Saturday, February 9th:
9:00 – 11:00am — load Gala items into vehicles at The Arc Greater Twin Cities and unload vehicles at Hyatt Regency Hotel (3 volunteers needed)
11:00 - 12:30pm — set up and decoration of silent auction area (8 volunteers needed)
9:30 – 11:30pm — coat check (12 volunteers needed)
Dress: The Arc Gala is a black tie event, but volunteers are not required to dress formal. If assisting with set up functions (9:00am - 4:30pm), feel free to dress casual. If volunteering during the event (4:30 – 11:30pm) dress, formal or business attire is required.
Volunteer Break Room: There will be a volunteer “Green Room” or break room for volunteers to grab a snack or beverage as needed.
Parking: Unfortunately, parking will not be validated. Parking is in a covered parking garage with 6'6" clearance, no Rv's, no motorcycles, and most vans will not clear. Vans over 6'6" can be accommodated directly across the street. Parking garage is managed by the city of Minneapolis and has no special rates or arrangements for events. Self-parking is $8 for 1–2 hours, $12 for 2–3 hours and $17 for 4-24 hours. Hopefully, this will not be a hardship as we are unable to make any discounts to this parking rate as the city owns the lot. There are 3 additional parking ramps you can park in. One lot is called the Millennium and is located right across from the Hyatt at 1313 Nicollet Mall, enter the lot off Nicollet Ave. The other two lots are Orchestral Hall parking lot and the Hilton Hotel parking ramp, enter either ramp off 11th Street. The Hyatt Regency is also located on a Metro Transit bus line. Please visit http://www.metrotrans... to learn more and to map out a bus route to the hotel.
Festivities: Once their shift is completed, volunteers will be able to kick back and relax in the Volunteer Green Room from 1:00-10:00pm.
Thank you again for your willingness to volunteer. I look forward to hearing from you which shift/task you wish to volunteer for.
