Event Set Up Volunteer - Melbourne

Family Services One off - an event Melbourne VIC

About this opportunity

Event details:

Date & time: Thursday 15 September 2022, 12pm-4pm

Location: Plaza Ballroom, 191 Collins Street, Melbourne

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

  • display our auction prizes
  • compile programs
  • lay out table collateral
  • put up sponsor banners
  • set up fundraising resources for our evening volunteers

Why does this role matter? This behind-the-scenes work is vital to the fundraising success of the Redkite corporate quiz and is a great opportunity to get stuck into some hands-on teamwork. 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 12pm until 4pm. We are looking for 12 volunteers to deliver event set up, 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. Snacks will be provided!

What are we looking for in our volunteers?

  • Available to volunteer for the full volunteer shift on Thursday 15 September from 12pm – 4pm
  • Able to take direction from a team leader and work well in a team
  • Diligent and responsible
  • Ability to safely lift and carry boxes of event resources.
