Volunteers needed for Streetblog and Streetfilms Annual Benefit!

Leemor C.
Group Organizer
San Francisco, CA
Hi everyone,

I'm on the planning committee for the annual benefit for Streetsblog and Streetfilms, Street of Dreams, which will take place on Friday, October 26, from 7:00-9:30 pm at WNYC's Greene Space on 44 Charlton St. (on the corner of Varick St.)
We could use some help gearing up for the big event!
All volunteers get free admission to the event, (so you save those $50) and it's a great chance to meet great people advocating for livable streets.
Below is a list of the various Volunteer shifts and positions we have available, so please take a look and reply to me at with the exact shift you'd like to fill.  You're welcome to sign up for more than one shift if times don't conflict.  Please let me know if you have any questions about volunteering for the event and many thanks in advance!
