2 Union Avenue, Saratoga, NY
We have been volunteering at Saratoga's First Night event for about five years now and VERY welcome volunteers. In exchange for your help for a few hours, you will be given a free button for all the festivities throughout the town the rest of the evening!
The job is pretty simple...mostly managing people coming and going from our building...directing them to the entertainment and acts within the building. It's a lot of fun and a great way to meet new people and mingle among those out for a great time.
We will be hosting TWO buildings this year! This is the original one but Saratoga Arts First Night is looking for volunteers for Lakeside Elementary where many of the children and family events will take place. There is a separate posting for that location.
Email or message Mary Henninger directly at [masked] for a specific address/location and job. If you do not ask for a specific job, you will be placed where we could use you!
Here are positions available at Empire College location from 6-8 however there is a later shift from 8-10 if you prefer...contact Mary Henninger about that option. Note that some shifts extend to 9.
Room 125: 1st Shift (6-8pm) MJ Henion-Runes (requires 2 Hosts)
Room 108: 1st Shift (6-8pm) Joan Scannel-It’s in the Cards (requires 2 Hosts)
