This is another plug to invite YOU to volunteer at Minnesota's Spiciest Celebration - Cinco de Mayo 2010! :) It's in less than two weeks away (Yahoo!) and we are still in need of 80 volunteers.
As most of you know, for the past 5-6 years, I have been a volunteer for a really FUN event on St. Paul's West Side, called Cinco de Mayo Fiesta. I have been invested personally in this event because my brother's nonprofit agency (REDA - Riverview Economic Development Association) spearheads this celebration and I volunteer as a way to show support for his nonprofit and also for our community.
This year, I am the Assistant Volunteer Coordinator for this celebration. Our goal is to get[masked] volunteers for this event. We still need around 80 volunteers!!! This is where *YOU*come in. :)
I invite you to support the fiesta as a part of the 2010 Volunteer Team. Join us on Friday May 7 and/or Saturday May 8, 2010 as over 100,000 fiesta goers attend Minnesota?s Spiciest Celebration! The Cinco de Mayo Fiesta in St. Paul is one of the top 10 Cinco de Mayo celebrations nationwide. The Hispanic/Latino culture is celebrated during this two-day, outdoor festival in the heart of the West Side community. Lend your time assisting in one of the many volunteer opportunities.
Volunteers receive a complimentary tee shirt and beverage while on shift. Free parking is also provided for our volunteers!
Kids who are 16 and older can sign up to volunteer alone; otherwise they need to volunteer with parents/guardians. Presently, volunteers are most needed on Saturday 12pm - 3pm and 3pm - 6pm. Volunteers are needed in parking management, stage set-up, fiesta preparation, traffic management, parade assembly, greeter, salsa tasting, survey registrar, and many other areas. If you'd like to sign up with a small group of people, please state names/request in comment section of online volunteer form.
Please consider volunteering Saturday May 8, 2010. An online volunteer application is available at the following link: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s/231330/2010-cinco-de-mayo-fiesta-sign-up
When you sign up, please put our group name of MEETUP into question #10 comment section online, so we know how you heard about this opportunity!
I will be volunteering at this event only on Saturday, May 8 from 6am to 10pm. I will likely be in the volunteer registration tent checking *YOU* in. Please note that unless you sign up with someone you know, you will be working with other volunteers from a variety of different places/agencies/programs, which is what I did last year and I met some wonderful people!
Please contact me (Michelle) at [address removed] for questions and specific information. We will notify you of your volunteer assignment based on hours of availability and completed application.
I would really appreciate it if you could pass this email onto your friends, family, colleagues, and your other contacts to help us reach our goal of getting enough volunteers to make this celebration a success! I look forward to seeing familiar faces among the new faces on our 2010 Volunteer Team!
Cinco de Mayo Fiesta 2010 Assistant Volunteer Coordinator
Hope to see you there!!! :)
