We need volunteers to help us with our annual Back 2 School Kickoff Event at Galleria Marchetti (825 W. Erie Street). This event will feature a VIP reception, cocktail hour and silent auction from 5:00pm-7:00pm in the La Sala Perugina and La Pergola (Front and side rooms), and then all guests will move to the main room for dinner, entertainment, and college scholarship presentation.

We need volunteers for each time slot listed below. If you are available before 2pm to help us organize our materials, then please specify in your email.
