Volunteer Info

THANK YOU in advance for your time, energy, and support of the Gift of Love Gala!  We’re very excited for this event and are so glad you can join us. We really couldn’t do it without you!

Click here to view this year’s volunteer orientation webinar! You can also view a copy of the slides here.

General Info

The volunteer room will open at 3:45pm and dinner will be served at 4:30pm and 6:00pm. Please check the volunteer schedule to see which dinner time you have been assigned to. Please be sure to arrive with enough time to eat and meet your Captain before your shift.

Please wear formal black. Comfortable shoes are recommended as are layers to keep you warm as the venue can get chilly in areas.

There is limited free parking at the arena in lot 2a, which is accessed off of College Drive. See the volunteer orientation package for a map of where to park and enter the building.

There will be someone in the Volunteer Room at all times, so valuables will be safe.

Volunteers are not permitted to drink alcohol at the Gift of Love.

This event would not happen without all of you. On behalf of the children and families on our program: THANK YOU AND HAVE FUN!

If you have any questions in advance of the orientation or event, please don’t hesitate to contact Alex Rios at [email protected].
