The Harlem Arts Festival (HAF) works to continue Harlem's legacy of making art that preserves the history and develops the identity of the neighborhood. HAF provides resources, visibility, and career opportunities to Harlem-based artists, and increases participation in the arts by the Harlem community through year-round events, culminating in our free, weekend-long festival in Marcus Garvey Park in June. Check out our website http://www.harlemartsfestival.com/ to learn more about what HAF does. Our annual gala is HAF's second biggest event of the year, and we need your help! This is one of our major fundraising events, and its success is crucial to our ability to carry out our mission to support the incredible talents of Harlem artists. This year's gala will take place on Thursday, March 30 at the Riverside Church Assembly Hall in Harlem. We're looking for volunteers to give a few hours of their time to help us pull off the big event. Things volunteers might do include checking in guests, liaising with the performers, collecting night-of donations, and encouraging guests to bid on auction items. The dress code is semi-formal, and volunteers will receive dinner and opportunities for breaks.
So if you can spare a bit of your time, come help make this year's HAF gala a smashing success. And of course, everyone at HAF is immensely thankful for whatever time you can give!
