BackUp's Opportunities

Bead Sellers/Bid Spotters 

Saturday, May 12th 5:30 pm until 10:00 pm

Personable, outgoing folks, comfortable with handling money and selling who are responsible for encouraging sales of beads for the Heads or Tails game! After the game ends, they are also responsible for noting the bid numbers for the Fund A Need and assisting Check Out Volunteers with entering that information. 

Auction & Game Attendants

Saturday, May 12th 5:30 pm until 10:00 pm

Awesome volunteers who like games and can easily encourage others to play! Staffing our auction, wine pull, and mystery box areas, they answer questions and process transactions for our patrons. After the auction closes, these volunteers help gather, label, and fetch items for check out. Must be skilled in Square, handling cash, and be service minded.

Check In & Check Out

Saturday, May 12th 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm

The face of the event, Check In & Check Out volunteers are both the first and lasting impression for our patrons! Taking down accurate information, processing credit card transactions, and sending our patrons home with the correct auction items are the tasks of the day. Must be comfortable with Square, utilizing Google Doc spreadsheets, computers, and be service minded.

Floaters

Saturday, May 12th 6:00 pm until 11:00 pm

These multi-taskers are vital to a successful event. Equal parts usher, guide, and wayfinder - these switch hitters fill any combination of volunteer roles as directed by our staff. This is a role that moves around a lot, so volunteers should be comfortable being on their feet most of the night.

Merch Table

Friday, May 11th 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm

Saturday, May 12th 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm

Selling our merchandise, ensuring we have a fully stocked table throughout the night, and taking special orders as needed. Merch volunteers are comfortable with Square and enjoy talking to folks! Personable folks with retail or sales experience are most successful in this role. 

Box Office 

Friday, May 11th 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm

A Friday night exclusive role, Box Officers welcome our patrons to the Concert, check them off our will call list, and accept further donations! Must be comfortable with Square, computers, and be service minded.

Ushers

Friday, May 11th 5:00 pm until 10:00 pm

A Friday night exclusive role, Ushers hand out programs, staff our Mystery Box station, and accept donations throughout the night. Guiding our patrons to accessible seating and answering questions, these volunteers should be excited to talk with folks, willing to be on their feet, and look for ways to make our patrons feel welcome.

FAQ's

Q: How old do Backup's have to be? 

A: BackUp's need to be over 18. Most of our opportunities involve handling money and other complex tasks that aren't suitable for younger children.

 

Q: If I'm under 18, can I volunteer with an adult? 

A: No. While we love that you would like to volunteer during the event, BackUp's often need to work independently, so we can't facilitate minors volunteering with adults. We encourage you to contact us for other BackUp's opportunities that support the choir!

 

Q: Can I watch the show?

A: No. All of our BackUp's have roles and duties that extend throughout the entire show. If you would prefer to support the choir by watching the show, we encourage you to do so by purchasing a ticket, and considering volunteering another time.

 

Q: Is there training? 

A: Yes! Mandatory training for all BackUp's will be Saturday, May 5th from noon until 2:00 pm, at Calvary Lutheran Church - 3901 Chicago Ave. Minneapolis MN 55407.
