BOYS & GIRLS CLUB OF ABERDEEN AREA
Brown County Fair
Monday, August 11 through Sunday, August 17
Our largest fundraiser of the year is right around the corner and we need your help to make this year another huge success. We are asking that all Club parents/grandparents volunteer 1 or 2 nights for the upcoming Brown County Fair concessions. As Club Membership continues to grow, we are seeing an even greater need for each and every Club parent & guardian to participate in fundraising activities either through volunteerism or by making a monetary contribution. As our membership form states, it costs nearly $750/year to provide a safe positive place for each Club member.
This event provides much needed funding for us to not only continue meeting our mission, but also to continue providing unique programming opportunities, and a safe place for area youth to learn and grow when school is out. This year we have 800+ volunteer positions available throughout the entire week of the fair (Monday, August 11 – Sunday, August 17).
We have many positions to fill including split-pot ticket sales (Mon-Tues & Sun), youth (accompanied by an adult) & adult hawkers who go throughout the Grandstand selling pop, popcorn, candy, etc., soda sales, food concessions, & serving in the adult beverage garden (must be 21). Free event admission, free food and free beverage are provided for all volunteers. Stop by the front desk today to sign-up, or ask to speak with Bryan for details or group commitments.
The Fair Board has done a great job bringing in great entertainment once again this year and we look forward to working with you and your friends and family to make this another successful year for the Boys & Girls Club of Aberdeen Area. Thank you to those of you who we can count on each and every time we have a need.
