Calling all volunteers! We need your help on the Pit Crew!
Seaside Le Mans: Saturday, September 9, 2017, at Mashpee Commons
Did you know it takes more than 150 volunteers to make Seaside Le Mans a success? From setting up the track, to selling raffle tickets, to handing out bottled water to the drivers, we need lots of hands on deck at the Race for the Cape Cod community.
Are you interested in volunteering? Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Jenn Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 508-394-8800 x141 for details. Volunteers will be asked to work in two-hour shifts minimum, but we welcome your help all day long! You can also complete this quick survey and we will contact you to confirm.
You are invited to the Volunteer Welcome and Orientation that will take place on Tuesday, August 29 from 5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. (with brief remarks at 5:45 p.m.) at Thirwood Place. The meeting will include an event overview and distribution of volunteer Pit Crew t-shirts.
Also, please save the date of Thursday, September 14, to join us for the Volunteer Appreciation Night at the Red Jacket Beach at 5:30 p.m.
All proceeds from this fundraising event will be donated to The Cape Cod Foundation, which will in turn distribute the gifts to this year’s beneficiaries: Cape Cod & Islands Major Crisis Relief Fund, Cape Cod Healthcare, Lower Cape Outreach Council, Mass Audubon Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary and Special Olympics Massachusetts.
We appreciate any time that you can give to helping make this event a success.
