And check out this great Volunteer Opportunity: Charity Network Inc's Fundraiser
We're nearly at the finish line for our "Art of Freedom" event, whose proceeds will go towards building a shelter for DC's child trafficking victims, and there are only few elements needed to polish the evening. One of them is volunteers! This is a great opportunity for young professionals who would like to attend the event, enjoy the Grammy Award-winning music, see the world-class artwork, and watch the live auction with the professional auctioneer...but who cannot afford to purchase tickets.
Volunteers will help with various aspects of the night. Tasks will include set-up, supporting the auctions, helping with check-in and check-out, working at the coat check, seating guests and directing them through the schedule, etc. You will be required to attending an information/training session in the early afternoon of May 19, so the total duration of the commitment is 8 hours from 4:00pm-12:00am, with scheduled breaks. Volunteers should contact me at [address removed]
Also, please follow up with anyone that you think might want to attend as a normal guest, of course, and have them contact Luda Huntsman ([address removed]
,[masked])! This last push is crucial!
See you tonight,
Elizabeth and Becky
