There are MANY ways to help!
You can now sign up to help set up on the day before and day of the event, or help us tear down and clean up after all the fun is over! We rely on the time (and muscle power!) of over 50 volunteers to make the night happen!
Most importantly, our hardworking committee chairs need help. If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chair: Sunita Shah
This is the team responsible for reaching out to past and potential donors to solicit donations. We need confident, friendly people who are capable of shamelessly promoting our school and securing amazing donations for the auction.
Chairs: Anjali Augustine and Jakob Bergendorff
Have a way with words? Help research and write descriptive copy for live and silent auction items. Excellence in writing and attention to detail are a must. This can be done anytime on any computer with Internet access, for as much time as you are able to offer from mid-January and through the day before the auction.
Chairs: Lilly Alexander and Jaimie Baird
This group will decide how and where items will be displayed, and will direct the efforts of set-up volunteers. We need creative and organized people with a gift for making things look spectacular.
Chair: Alison Bellino Johnston
Help sell admission tickets outside the school prior to the auction at drop-off and pick-up, and during Parent/Teacher conferences. We’ll start selling tickets in late March, and you can volunteer for as many hours/week as you can spare.
Food & Beverages
Chair: Soo-Mi Yun
In coordination with the donations committee, this team is responsible for securing food donations and if necessary, purchasing food items for consumption during the auction. They also schedule and coordinate pick-up/delivery of food and coordinate the paid bartenders that work during the auction.
Chair: Amber Jacobs
This committee oversees the production of our Wine Wall – a collection of wines that are sold at the auction – including setting up wine packages the day of the auction.
Decorations & Setup
Chair: Amy Pasquariello
Help turn the school into Club 234! This group is responsible for securing and setting up decorations for the auction. A big part of this job is directing set-up volunteers the night before and day of the auction. If you are creative, organized and know how to throw a good party – this is the group for you!
Chair: Jennifer Redmond
This group coordinates with the Decorations committee to help set up for the Auction. Other volunteer roles include helping out during the actual auction and clean up on Sunday. Click on the “Setup and Day-of Volunteers” tab for more information.
- We will need volunteers to help setup the night before the auction and several more to finish setting up on Saturday morning/afternoon. We also need a few volunteers to fill a variety of roles during the auction. We will particularly need a few dedicated volunteers to help clean up the following day: Sunday, April 2. Additional information will be sent home via backpack and email in March.
Friday Night Setup (15 people)
Help setup tables, cover walls and other decorations. Some heavy lifting may be required.
Saturday Setup (20-25 people)
Help set out merchandise, hang signs, assemble decor accessories and general setup.
At the Auction (4 people)
We’ll need a few people during the auction to monitor valuable items. Most importantly, we’ll need people to help locate and give winners their items, monitor exits and help any guests with questions about bidding using the Greater Giving app (training provided).
After the Auction / Break Down Staff (8-10 people)
Help break down tables and store remaining auction items immediately after the Auction on Saturday night. We also need 8-10 people the following day (Sunday) to remove the decorations and change Club 234 back to PS 234.
