About the Volunteer Opportunity
For these large scale events, we depend on a group of passionate volunteers to help execute the vast amount of tasks and count on every single person’s participation. Even if one person drops out, it can cause delays to our speed of work during a complicated event schedule. Volunteers gain hands on experience setting up the events by assisting with tasks such as: setting up chef sampling stations with supplies, setting up tables/linens according to the event layout, distributing products to various bars and stations based on the bar plan, setting up signage, and setting up registration. During the events, volunteers will be working directly with guests, helping at registration, handing out VIP gifts, helping guests navigate the venue, and encouraging guests to enter sweepstakes for sponsor data collection. All volunteers will work alongside the Boston magazine Marketing team.
