We’ve been offered the opportunity to set up an information booth at the Calgary International Blues Festival, free of charge. This donation was provided by the producer of the Bluesfest, Cindy McLeod.
We will be given 2 wristbands (non-transferrable) for Thursday & Friday (one shift, two persons per day), and 4 wristbands (non-transferrable) for Saturday & Sunday (two shifts, two persons each shift per day).
This year the dates are August 2 – August 5 with one shift on August 2 and 3, two on August 4 and 5 for a total of six shifts. Two volunteers are required for each of the six shifts.
BONUS!!! Your wristband gives you full access on the day of your shift to the Bluesfest AND the Twilight Series Dance Party across the street at the Kerby Centre later that night. When deciding what shift you want, maybe check which musicians are playing that day before you make your selection.
We will be conducting a small silent auction and instructions will be provided to volunteers at the venue.
The main function of the volunteers will be to promote our silent auction, our Fall sale and give out handouts about Ujamaa Grandmas and our work with the Grannies in Africa. The volunteers will not be responsible for handling our sales and associated money during the festival.
This is a great opportunity to socialize, meet Calgarians and give them an idea of what Ujamaa Grandmas and the Stephen Lewis Foundation are all about.
WHAT: Calgary International Blues Fest 2018
WHEN: August 2, 3, 4, 5
WHERE: Shaw Millennium Park, 1220 9th Avenue SW (10th St. SW C-train station next to this park)
