2013 Light The Night Walk Volunteer Opportunities
Pre-event In-house Volunteers
This committee plays a vital role in increasing revenue for the Light The Night Walk by assisting staff to secure corporate sponsors and/or teams. The committee primarily communicates through email, one-on-one meetings with Light The Night staff and individual phone or conference calls. If you have 10 or more corporate contacts that you wish to invite to participate in the 2013 Light The Night Walk, this committee is for you! Contact us today for a detailed informational packet. We are currently recruiting executive committee members for the 2013 Walk!
This committee plays a vital role in the planning and implementation of the Light The Night Walk. The planning committee provides ideas to enhance the Walks, solicits companies for in-kind donations (food, kids activities, etc.), assists with marketing efforts and serves as volunteer leaders the day of the Walk. If you have ideas to improve the Walk or are willing to solicit companies for in-kind donations, we have an open spot for you on our committee! Attendance at monthly committee meetings (May ? November) are required.
In-house support is occasionally needed throughout the year. Opportunities include mailings, stuffing packets and other general office support. Also, volunteers are needed to make phone calls in evenings and weekends to past and current participants for recruitment and fundraising support efforts.
Pre-event Community Volunteers/Ambassadors
Spreading the word about LLS and the Light The Night Walk in the community is an essential component of inviting new participants to the Walk. Each year, volunteers are needed to host tables with Walk information at expos, distribute flyers and brochures to local businesses, attend Chamber networking events and give presentations to local organizations (Rotary clubs, etc.). If you enjoy meeting new people, visiting community businesses and/or giving presentations, sign up today!
Opportunities are also available for blood cancer survivors to share their journey with others. Volunteers are always needed to attend events, write letters, speak at events and share their story in print. If you or someone you know is a blood cancer survivor and would like to get involved with the Walk as an honored hero, please contact us.
Detroit Tigers 50/50 Raffle
The Detroit Tigers Foundation hosts a 50/50 raffle at several games throughout the season allowing local charities to raise donations. Volunteers are needed to sell raffle tickets at two Tigers games. Volunteers get fundraising credit, a free game ticket after raffle sales conclude, parking pass and fun incentives. Volunteers will be standing the entire time while selling tickets, must volunteer for both games and must be 18 years or older. In 2012, LLS volunteers raised over $5,900!
As you can imagine, it takes a tremendous number of volunteers to make the Light The Night Walk run smoothly. Volunteers are needed to assist in areas such as: set-up and break-down, check-in, cheer stations, route guides, kids activities, mission tent and other areas. If you would like to volunteer the night of the event, please contact us anytime!
