Volunteer – St. Jude Discover the Dream at Columbus Zoo – 5/16/19

May 16 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Columbus Gives Back is thrilled to volunteer at our beloved Columbus Zoo for the 14th Annual St. Jude Discover the Dream!  This benefit for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will feature cocktails, dinner, live and silent auctions, a patient speaker and a “Give to Live” event. Money raised will help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

What: We are asking volunteers to serve as golf cart and path greeters. These are the first faces guests see when they arrive. We will greet guests and welcome them to the event, then have guests fill out the registration cards as they ride the golf carts along the pathway to inside the venue. This makes for a speedy and quick check in process. No waiting in long lines. Volunteers need to be upbeat and friendly. Some will operate the golf carts while others will smile and wave as guests enter the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. We have volunteers outside the entrance to greet guests as they walk in and help them put on their St. Jude lapel pin.

Where: Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, 4850 W. Powell Rd. Powell, OH 43065.

We need all volunteers to arrive to Water’s Edge and get checked in no later than 5:00pm. Volunteers will check in at the sign that says Volunteer Check In located at Boardwalk #1. The boardwalks are the venues that sit on the river, only slightly removed from the St. Jude event space. This is where volunteers need to check in, place their bags, get their duties, pick up a name tag, and St. Jude lapel pin. 

When: Thursday, May 16th 5PM to 7PM

Event Leaders: events@columbusgivesback.org

Additional Info:  We ask that all volunteers please wear comfortable shoes, a white top, and black pants/skirt. Promptly at 5:00pm we will have a short Volunteer Kick-Off Meeting to explain the evening and duties. Food/snacks will be provided to the volunteers before the event begins at 6:00pm.
