Volunteers needed for Red White & BOOM Beverage Stands on Nationwide Plaza

The Three-Legged Mare is once again a sponsor of this year's Red, White & BOOM! on July 3rd and they have invited the Jacket Backers to man some of their beverage stands to help us spread the word about our club and raise tips for a fundraiser!  We are looking for volunteers of all ages, you don't have to be 21 or over!!!

They will be running all of the beverage stands on Nationwide Plaza and the street will be blocked off and a stage nearby. Click here for a map and stage schedules. We will be allowed to help promote the club as well as sell memberships, etc. We are looking for as many volunteers as possible. It sounds like a great time and great way to meet a lot of new faces.

We'll need people from around 2 pm - midnight and you would be helping in shifts, minimum of 3 hours, but feel free to stay as long as you would like.

Everyone who volunteers for at least 3 hours will receive a $25.00 gift card to the Three-Legged Mare; we will also have a limited number of wristbands to share giving us access to the sponsors' hospitality tent (which includes foods & drink)!

The Three-Legged Mare or Jacket Backers may provide free tee shirts. Please respond ASAP if you can help out to Jessica at activities@jacketbackers.org and let her know what hours you would be available to help! The more help we can get, the more funds we can raise!
