Calgary Cinematheque Society is seeking volunteers for a casino fundraiser on July 18-19, 2018, at Elbow River Casino. As a non-profit, we depend on charitable casino events to help fund our programming. These events require about 40 volunteer shifts to be filled before the organization can receive funding.
We're calling for volunteers from our membership and audience to help directly support our programming for the next year. If you volunteer, not only will you be helping us foster critical cinema culture in Calgary, you will also receive free meals, snacks, and transportation home (if needed). Training is also provided, so no experience is necessary. Volunteers must be 18+.
Please CLICK HERE to view the shifts available.We still have 22 shifts to fill for our casino event. Shifts can be day shifts (10:45 AM - 7:30 PM) or evening shifts (6:30 PM / 11:00 PM - 3:30 AM). If you're interested in signing up for a shift, please contact Kevin at email@example.com
We rely on your support to present our ongoing programming of rare and treasured cinema. Please consider making a donation to the Calgary Cinematheque. A tax receipt will be issued for all contributions of $20 or more.
