Winter Party Festival is recruiting volunteers. Here's the news release:
From the internationally acclaimed Beach Party, to a progressive shopping night on the world-renowned Lincoln Road pedestrian mall, to electrifying events exclusively for women, the 2014 Winter Party Festival promises a six-day, non-stop lineup of events and activities.
In order to produce “The Hottest Winter in the World,” the organizers of Winter Party Festival are seeking hundreds of volunteers to help with a variety of tasks including assisting with nightclub and social events, staffing the Welcome Center, event production, finance and media relations, among others. Various shifts are available from Monday, March 3, through Monday, March 10. More than 125 shifts are available, requiring more than 500 volunteers.
Interested volunteers can apply online at http://www.winterparty.com/volunteer-winter-party-festival and follow the instructions. Volunteers will be asked to complete a simple form and let the Volunteer Relations Committee know which activities and which shifts they can work. Volunteers who sign up and successfully complete two shifts will receive a complimentary admission ticket to the Sunday Beach Party and to Ignite, the Thursday night dance event.
“What makes Winter Party Festival a ‘party with a purpose’ and distinguishes it from other events is that it has become a significant fundraiser for local LGBT grassroots charities and for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. The Task Force has strived for the equal rights of the LGBT community for more than 40 years,” said Manny Gomez, Director of Volunteer Relations for Winter Party Festival.
In addition to the shifts listed online, there are Finance and Sponsorship positions available at the Welcome Center and at many of the events throughout the week. Those interested in learning more about these positions should contact Gomez at [email protected].
Proceeds from Winter Party Festival and the Miami Recognition Dinner support the important work of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force to build power, take action and create positive, lasting change for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families throughout the country. A significant portion of the proceeds also funds multiple organizations serving the LGBT community in South Florida through a grant made by the Task Force to the GLBT Community Projects Fund of The Miami Foundation.
Tickets are now on sale along with multi-event passes at www.winterparty.com/purchase.
