WE ARE STILL IN NEED OF MANY VOLUNTEERS
On Saturday, February 3rd, the West Bloomfield bands will host over 70 groups during our Winter Invitational at West Bloomfield High School. Last year, we had over 1600 students compete at our show. In addition to the students, there will be spectators!
To host this many groups, we need many volunteers! We will need people to help from 9am until the show ends at 10pm. Even if you are only available for a few hours, we need your help!
(NOTE: This is a great opportunity for students to earn NHS volunteer/service hours)
Our volunteers help the various groups with parking, getting into the building, moving from the practice area to the performance area in a timely fashion, and helping them reload their equipment into their trucks. We sell concessions, raffle tickets, programs and shout outs. Our winter show generates a big profit for our program. It is a very important fundraiser for us.
Please contact Ruth Richards today at email@example.com to volunteer.
