St. Jude Dream a Little Dream Fashion Show
21 people are interested
The 25th Annual St. Jude Fashion Show will be held on Sunday, November 10th, 2019 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont. Nearly 1,300 guests will attend this premiere event featuring a champagne reception, luncheon, extensive raffle, and professional fashion show. We would like to request your help as a volunteer to ensure this event runs smoothly. Please note that volunteers for this event must be 18 years of age or older.
We will need volunteers in a number of different capacities including Set-up, Registration, Raffle Sellers/Raffle Floaters, Greeters and Check-Out. The St. Jude IT team will train all of the raffle/registration volunteers on how to use the touchpads and software in an online seminar prior to the event and will provide another training opportunity before the shifts start. Also, we are happy to provide you lunch during your shift.
**We would be happy to have you for both shifts, but please note it is a long day and we rely on your commitments to ensure a successful event!**
There will be different raffle responsibilities depending on what shift you choose to work.
Shift 1: 8:15am - 12:30p
The first shift of Raffle Ticket Sellers and Raffle floaters will stay in assigned areas or float amongst the event to sell raffle tickets using touchpads.
Shift 2: 12pm-4pm
Second shift raffle volunteers will be continuing to sell raffle tickets until Grand Raffle closes at 1:30pm. Volunteers will then be assisting with packaging up and distributing raffle items to the winners. Some volunteers may be asked to transport larger packages to the entrance where winners will pick up with their vehicle (carts will be available).
Registration volunteers will help register our guests upon their arrival using our St. Jude online registration system on laptops. This will include verifying and entering donor contact and payment information.
Check-out volunteers will be checking out all raffle winners and ensuring that the correct paperwork is filled out in order for them to claim their raffle prize. This will also be done on our St. Jude online registration system on laptops.
Shift 1: 8:15am - 12pm
Greeters and floaters during the morning shift will be greeting and directing guests to registration upon their arrival to the event. They will also be provided a map of the main ballroom and asked to help guests find their correct tables when the doors open.
Shift 2: 12-4pm
Greeters and floaters during the afternoon shift will be guarding raffle items and communicating to guests that they will need to check-out before receiving their package as well as directing guests to check-out. We ask the greeters and floaters remain flexible because that tasks may change depending on the flow of event.

About ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
5501 N Cumberland Ave, Suite 101, Chicago, IL 60656, US
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won't stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Join the St. Jude mission by visiting stjude.org, liking St. Jude on Facebook ( facebook.com/stjude) and following us on Twitter ( @stjude).
