For the past six seasons, Schnauzer Love Rescue (SLR) has had the opportunity to volunteer with Verizon Amphitheater in Alpharetta to set up a volunteer-run beverage stations to raise funds to pay the medical bills of the schnauzers in our foster homes.
For each show, we set up a booth or two (up to six!) where we pour beer, wine and water during the show. As a group, we work 20+ shows each season. The rescue is paid comissions by the venue based on our sales, and all tips are donated to the rescue as well.
The best part? 100% of the funds go directly to the SLR fosters for vaccinations, spay/neuter or other medical needs to get them ready to meet the people who will make them forever family members. Schnauzer Love Rescue, Inc. is a "no kill" organization which will take in a schnauzer with medical needs that otherwise mean euthanasia in a shelter. Getting them healthy for adoption can be expensive.
What you give:
- A few hours of your time
- A can-do attitude and service with a smile
What you get:
- Free admission to the shows and free parking
- The opportunity to hear some great live music
- That great feeling that comes from knowing that you’ll be helping Schnauzers get the care that they need to find a forever family.
Reaching out for information does not obligate you for any specific show or for any number of shows. It is just what I use when I send out show announcements to recruit for each individual show.
The season runs from April-November, so there are lots of opportunities to volunteer! Verizon will announce shows all summer long, but the dates they have so far can be found here http://www.vzwamp.com/events/
The amphitheater's insurance requires a 2 hour training course on alcohol awareness before participating. This is frequently offered, and relatively painless. (I just attended, and it was not bad at all.)
**We have also set up a Facebook page where you can follow up with the show announcements and see when we’re looking for help! https://www.facebook.com/groups/PouringForThePups/ Please join us there if you are on Facebook! This is the easiest way to RSVP if you are active on Facebook.
Looking forward to hearing from you! I'll be happy to answer any questions that you have.
