About this opportunity

Event details: Date & time: Thursday 15 September 2022, 4.30pm-11.30pm

Location: Plaza Ballroom, 191 Collins Street, Melbourne

What will I be doing? You will be working as part of a team to deliver Redkite’s signature fundraising event; the Redkite Corporate Quiz. In this role, you will work as a team to:

  • Welcome guests on arrival
  • Sell raffle tickets to guests
  • Encourage guests to participate in fundraising games throughout the night
  • Act as spotters in our live auction
  • Distribute prizes to winners
  • Pack up Redkite resources after the event

Why does this role matter? Our team of confident, friendly evening volunteers are vital to the fundraising success of the Redkite corporate quiz. In 2019, this event raised over $315,000 to support families facing their child’s cancer diagnosis. This money is used to provide essential support to children with cancer and their families. We’re here throughout the whole cancer journey, from the moment of diagnosis until after treatment finishes. Our support includes financial assistance to cover essential costs, emotional and mental health support, and support through grief and loss.

What are the key details? Volunteers are needed from 4.30pm until 11.30pm. We are looking for up to 30 volunteers to deliver this event, and so we are happy to accommodate teams of volunteers as well as individuals. Everyone will be fully briefed so they feel confident in their role and have the support of a volunteer team leader at the event. An evening meal and comprehensive briefing will be provided.

  • Available to volunteer for the full volunteer shift on Thursday 15 September from 4.30pm-11.30pm
  • Able to take direction from a team leader and work well in a team
  • Confident, friendly and personable
