RiseUp Malawi is looking for strategic and day of volunteers for our third annual golf fundraiser, Let Hope Rise 2024, at TOP GOLF in Centennial on October 6th, 2024. Strategic volunteers will be involved with the planning process and are expected to attend monthly event meetings leading up to the tournament starting in March. These meetings last for 2 hours and are held at the Exchange Coffee House in Castle Pines. Volunteers will be working to secure sponsorships & product donations for players bags and silent auction/raffle as well as promoting tournament registration. As a volunteer you will gain a thorough understanding of charity event planning, fundraising strategy, and logistics as well as learning about Malawi and our poverty alleviation efforts there. The biggest reward is getting to do something really awesome for our children in Malawi by giving back your time!
Additional volunteers will be needed for day of on-site support. Day of volunteer opportunities include greeting & checking in attendees, speaking with attendees about our work, selling raffle tickets, silent auction support, passing out thank you gifts and players bags and other logistical support.
