SUPERSTAR SUB-COMMITTEE VOLUNTEERS:(work multiple days, supervise an area of the event) These are folks who love what we do and want to be a bigger part of helping us achieve our mission. Not only do they work multiple days surrounding an event but often times assist us between events with a variety of glamorous tasks. For each event, these amazing superstars, get an event shirt, and we make a donation on their behalf to a non-profit organization of their choice.
INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEERS: (work shifts before, during and after the event for tickets or gift cards) Due to the fact that our pre-arranged group volunteers have increased, we don't use as many individual volunteers as we used to. But we do have some regular individual volunteers that help us out on a regular basis for one, two or all three of our events. Individual volunteers also have the option to dedicated their time to one of our many organizations.
VOLUNTEER GROUPS & ORGANIZATIONS: Pre-arranged Groups/Organizations don't get tickets or shirts, but they do get credit for number of hours worked and after the event we make a donation to your organization. Groups earn anywhere from $100 to $2000 and up. Donations are based on number of hours your organization works. It's a great way to earn funds for your organization - just show up & work! Most shifts are the day of event, but we do have some before and after.
Please note, if you are working for a group and want to attend the event, you will need to purchase your own ticket before the event sells out. Group Volunteers do not get free admission into our events, as we are making a donation to your organization.
Each Group has a group leader that our volunteer manager coordinates with. We use an on-line program called SIGNUP.COM (previously Volunteer Spot).
We give preference to locally based groups/organizations that serve and benefit our local community.
Smithfield VA Events is a 501 (c) (3) public charity. All events are 21 & Up only. See each event's rules for specific details on each event.
