Fundraising Opportuntiy! GREAT MONEY FOR YOUR ACCOUNT!

April Frasse has secured us an opportunity to volunteer at a "AMERICAN FAMILY FUN DAY" Event.  The event is Saturday, June 1, 2013 at the Lake City Community Center.  There are 2 shifts.  We need a total of 12 adults and 18 students.  Shift 1 is from 9:00AM-4:30PM (6 students and 4 adults) and Shift 2 is from 11:30AM - 6:00PM (12 students and 8 adults).  Please only sign-up for 1 shift.  Volunteer by following this link:
Each student who signs up will earn $50.00 for their student account and each parent who signs up will help their student earn an additional $25.00 for their student account.  The spaces are limited, so it will on a first come first served basis.  There should be more events like this to come in the near future. 

Here is the typical event:

(a) Consists of unloading and constructing game booths, various activities, food tents, food preparation, etc.

- Please Be Aware that some items weigh over 50 pounds (Team Effort and some muscles are definitely


(b) This portion of the day usually lasts two to four hours (if more than 4 hours of setup is required, your group will be scheduled to come out and setup the day before the event). American Family Day (AFD) Event Managers will be on site when you arrive and will give everyone in your group complete, detailed
instructions throughout the entire day.


One hour training period plus the average event is four to six hours.

(a) Training Period: AFD manager(s) and/or volunteer group leader

will make assignments and volunteers will be trained specifically for

those assignments. Assignments could include running game booths, supervising children's activities, running sports games, preparing food, serving concession treats, etc. Beverages and a lunch are usually provided for the volunteers during this portion of the event. (b) Running of the Event: Staffing all activities, serving guests, and maintaining staffer's area with a smile on your face!


Includes clean up, dissembling all booths, activities, tents, etc., loading items back on our truck, and cleaning up the grounds. A typical takedown is an hour and a half to two hours. Of course, the more people who stay and help, the quicker everyone will go home!

DONATION: Amounts fluctuate for each event depending on the size of the event, the number of activities, and the length of the event. But for an average party, the donation is about $1,300.   It is my understanding that we will be trained for our duties upon arrival, and there will be a supervisor helping us to know what to do.  We just have to show up and be willing to work with a smile.  This sounds like fun!!!
