About Ping Pong Ball Volunteering
The Ping Pong Ball isn’t just our biggest fundraiser, it’s downright FUN! Sponsors and guests can compete in our Table Tennis Tournament, play games, or bid on any of our unique auction packages. All proceeds benefit Jackson Chance Foundation and families with critically ill babies in the NICU. Volunteers are crucial the the event's success and we could not do it without them.
The Ping Pong Ball VIP Recpetion begins at 4:30pm and the general event runs from 5:30pm - 10:00pm on Thursday, November 8. Volunteers must be available for a 3:30pm volunteer orientation. There are limited volunteer spots available for those who are unable to join us for the entire event. We understand how busy people's schedules are and if you are unable to join us at 3:30pm or have additional time constraints please let us know in the notes field below. We may be able to offer a pre-event orientation over the phone. All volunteers will be able to take breaks to eat and enjoy the event.
Some volunteer positions will require technical abilities as you'll be helping guests check-in/check-out, make donations, and place auction bids, all of which is done through our online event management software. This will include entering guest information on laptops and ipads and assisting guests with our mobile event website, which they can access from their individual smart phone. Let us know your interests/abilities below.
Some volunteer positions will be placed on our event activations team. The primary goal of the Ping Pong Ball is to raise money so that we can help even more families with babies in the NICU. This team's primary focus will be to encourage guests to make donations, purchase raffle tickets, bid on auction items, and play beer pong and other games. Let us know if you're interested below.
We need a few indviduals to help lead event activations on the day of the event, which includes training a segment of volunteers. This will require an additional time commitment prior to the event in order to orient you on event specifics so that you are able to jump right in the day of the event. If you are intersted in leading a volunteer group let us know below.
