Thank you for many enthusiastic support in volunteering at this event. You can of course just come to the event and enjoy but we are also still in need for more people to ether sign up or confirm. Some people have asked if this event is "free". Yes, it is for those who are volunteering and staying only for their shift(s) and we are grateful! For those who want to come early or stay later before and after the shift(s), we welcome that and the discount code for this MeetUP group is: atl_volunteer_meetup (case sensitive).
Go to the link below and look for "Begin Order" in the orange box.
Please see detailed Q & As below. I hope many of you can join us! Please feel free to email or call me with any questions you may have... Rina Menosky [masked] / [address removed]
"Do we need a ticket to the event?" If the event was funded monetary by big corporate sponsors, I would say no but unfortunately, that is not a case (I wish it were…). So, here are your THREE options, IF YOU ARE….
1) …only coming for the shift and not staying/eating (thank you for your time!):No worries about getting a ticket. However, please indicate that in the email. Also, you could still enter to raffle (@$5 each) or buy art prints (@$20) and those are all greatly appreciated! All proceeds will go to the cause.
2) … feeling generous (on top of being kind already!),please purchase the regular priced tickets @$25 or 35* or use this code to get the discount (save_derrame) for Shepherd Center special price @ $17/ticket - this covers heavy hors d'oeuvres and all the donations will go to the cause. >> With this option, you'll also be automatically entered to a raffle and have a chance to win concert tickets such as ones from Rialto Center for the Arts. (*$35 is with 2 drinks tickets in addition)
3) …. coming to the event and doing the shift but not eating at the event (you'll love the program!),please get the volunteer discount by using this code (atl_volunteer_meetup) for $10/ticket. All the proceeds go to the cause.
For 2) & 3), tickets are available here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/218473
"Parking?"There are ample parking space in front of and the back of The Defoor Center. Please try parking in the back and leave the front clear for those who may have disability.
"Arrival time for my shift?"Unless you are assigned to the set up or the first shift (7:00-8:00 pm), please be at your designated station of the venue no later than 15 min. before your shift time. The task details will be sent to you prior to the event but this way, you'll have a smooth transition with the shift before. If you are for the set up and the first shift, you'll be given designated time in the detail.
"Attire?"The event attire is "dressy". Within that, you can wear anything you'd like. Rumor says that some people will come in a very flamenco inspired dress! The name tag will be given and during the shift, please wear the name tag so that guests can identify.
"I can't volunteer at the event but what can I do prior?"Please spread the words. Tell your friends and family. Be connected on facebook event page. https://www.facebook.com/events/152033494906653/If you can take some flyers to places like language schools, dance studios, yoga/pilates studios, bike shops… prior to the event, please let me know. We will coordinate.
