We have begun organizing MAP’s July 26, 2017 Mangrove Action Day (MAD) Dinner, and need a team of interns and volunteers to contribute to the vision and make it even more spectacular than last year!
Mangrove Action Day is now and internationally recognized UN holiday, and this will be the 19th annual celebration, coinciding with MAP's 25th Anniversary!
There are several kinds of opportunities:
Silent Auction Outreach: Contact local, supportive groups that can contribute silent auction donations. Email, and follow-up with businesses to put together silent auction packages. Need to be able to make day-time calls.
Publicity: Help create promotional materials and conduct outreach to our Community Partners to publicize the event. Assist with social media outreach (draft posts, create attractive visuals).
Food Outreach: Contact local businesses, farms, co-ops, wineries and bakeries to see if they can donate food this year.
Supporter Outreach: This essential role follows up with our valued MAP membership requesting that they attend the dinner and encourage their network to attend as well. You will be provided with all the contacts and outreach materials you need!
Creative Design: Assist with the creation of attractive decorations for the event, including printing and matte-framing photos, creating wall art of mangrove trees, and more!
Event Volunteer: Help with set up, serving, running the auction, and cleanup/breakdown after the event.
