The largest Band Booster fundraiser of the year is coming up fast – The Cleveland National Air Show September 3-5th.
The North Royalton Band Boosters have provided manpower to the air show for many years and we are given preferential treatment by the organizers due to the large number of hard working and enthusiastic volunteers we offer. When fully staffed, this event earns the Band up to $10,000!
In order to fully staff the air show and maximize our fundraising opportunity, we need to supply 80 volunteers each day of the air show. We will sell and collect tickets at the Plaza booth and at Gate 13, where we will also managing the parking.
For those of you who have not worked the air show before, this is a great way to get to know your fellow band parents and have a fun time meeting people. Volunteering at the Air Show is usually a family event so moms, dads and siblings are all welcome along with our “Bandos.” Children must be 15 years of age to participate.
To sign up for your slots, we have set up a form at www.signupgenious.com. All you need to do is select your day, indicate the number of volunteers in your group and provide a phone number and email address. All volunteers need to sign up on the SignupGenius link….
