Jessica, who is in charge of contacting volunteers, did a great job communicating with me and providing me with specific details regarding this volunteer opportunity. The other staff members are also very friendly. I had wonderful day there. In the afternoon, I helped with setup, and in the evening I helped with serving. The volunteer servers and other staff members are get to eat the extra cooked food by the guest chef. It was very delicious! There was also wine tasting. Of course I didn't drink any because I am underage, but if anybody who is of age and would want to volunteer should really come! This is a wonderful event.
