Volunteer for the Holiday Parade and Jinglefest!
2012 will be the 66th Annual Asheville Holiday Parade. In honor of the ADA's 25th anniversary, our parade theme this year is "Silver & Snowflakes!" The day’s fun won’t end there. After the parade, there's lots of free fun and entertainment with JingleFest from 1–4 pm at Roger McGuire Green in Pack Square Park.
Two events means twice the volunteer slots! On the next page, you'll be given several options to choose from. We have multiple shifts throughout the day!
Feel free to pick several shifts but make sure they are not overlapping times!
The choice(s) you make will be the shift you are signed up for at the event. Due to needing specific shifts and duties, this sign-up is a little different than the Downtown After 5 eventbrites. This is a first come, first serve opportunity.
Volunteering for the Holiday Parade counts towards your 2012 Volunteer Perks points.
So how does this thing work?
Simple… Two to three weeks before each event, you will receive an invitation from Eventbrite (just like this one!) to volunteer for the next event. Just follow the directions to register yourself as an Eventbrite user (you may have already done this to attend the Volunteer Orientation Party. If so, simply log on and continue.)
If you wish to volunteer, follow the directions to REGISTER. You will be asked to check your preferred shifts and volunteer position. Once you finish, and register, you will receive a confirmation email from Eventbrite, which will allow you to print your ticket. Each person wishing to volunteer will need to complete this step. You may register up to two people from the same invitation.
VERY IMPORTANT…YOU MUST PRINT THIS TICKET AND BRING IT WITH YOU!
If you have trouble printing the ticket, please contact the ADA Office at info@AshevilleDowntown.org
When you come to the volunteer check in tent at the beginning of your shift, we will scan your tickets with our very-smart phones and VOILA! Your shift is counted towards our volunteer perks!
ATTN other very-smart phone users…you may also download the ticket onto your phone, where we can then scan your phone. Just make sure we can see the bar code from the ticket.
One Last Thing…
We know this is all new to some of you, so please feel free to call or email me with questions!
Looking forward to seeing you all again!
