Amazing HRC Portland Volunteers and Supporters,
It’s that time of year again! This is our call to action for volunteers for the 2014 HRC Gala Dinner. Come and be a part of our signature event! Every dollar raised goes to fund Equality from here in Oregon & Southwest Washington to across the country and beyond.
To those of you who have volunteered in the past, THANK YOU for your dedication to this great cause. This event would not be possible without the help of generous people like you. If you haven’t volunteered before, it can be a fun and rewarding experience, so please consider lending your time.
The event will be held on Saturday, July 19th, 2014 at the Lewis and Clark Estate Gardens. We are in need of 50+ volunteers from 10:00 am – 3:30 pm & 3:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m shifts to make this entire event take place - so we are inviting you to please join us. If you have a friend that we can count on who would be interested in volunteering, please pass this information on to them!
Free parking at Lewis & Clark and lunch/dinner are provided. There should also be plenty of time for all volunteers to enjoy parts of the program. This year there will also be a special prize drawing among all the volunteers that participate.
A volunteer orientation is required for the evening shift and will take place at 3:30 promptly, so please arrive on time, and meet at the registration area.
So why not volunteer and get to be a part of the inner workings of this great event? Please contact volunteer@HRCPortlandGala.org if you would like to participate.
