GREENWAY LADIES GUILD MISSION: The Greenway Ladies Guild is an organization of women committed to supporting the Anne Springs Close Greenway through provision of time, talent and treasures, in order to promote the importance of stewardship and protection of this natural preserve.
THE GREEN GALA: The ladies are hosting their 3rd Annual Greenway Gala. This black tie affair will be one night to remember! Last year, $60,000 was raised for the Anne Springs Close Greenway! This year all proceeds go to the Greenway's Summer Camp and Recreation Scholarship Program. As a volunteer, you will get to experience this "green" carpet event while giving back to the Greenway and having fun!
AVAILABLE VOLUNTEER POSITIONS:

RAFFLE TICKETS - Volunteers will mingle among the crowd selling raffle tickets. These volunteers must be outgoing and willing to converse with strangers in order to sell tickets benefiting the Greenway.
EVENT CHAPERONE/PATROL - These volunteers will assist with greeting guests and assisting staff with general event control. Basically, we need volunteers patrolling the grounds to make sure guests are on their best behavior. These volunteers do not have to deal with guests directly, but need to alert staff if a guest gets out of hand. With the bourbon tasting this volunteer position might be vital in making sure everyone has an enjoyable night!

SILENT AUCTION CHECKOUT - Volunteers will pair guests to their auction items as the runners deliver the items to the front of the Dairy Barn. Silent auction checkout volunteers will remain in the front throughout the night, print out slips to finalize purchases of items, and hand the envelope with auction bidders name on it as they leave with item!
CHECKOUT BOOTH - Say goodbye to guests as they take off, and hand them a souvenir gift before they go! Polish the night off with a little gift of thanks.
