RAYS’ CONCESSION FUNDRAISER – 2017 BASEBALL SEASON

Here you’ll find important information about the Rays’ concession fundraiser for both new and active volunteers. Additional messages will be emailed to volunteers including game dates and details for signing up for games.  To ensure you receive upcoming messages, all volunteers interested in participating in the 2017 baseball season should email our Rays Coordinator, Sarah Masi,  and provide the following information:

  • Volunteer(s) name
  • Band student(s) being supported
  • Volunteer(s) phone #
  • Volunteer(s) email address

 

For new volunteers:

If you have not participated in this fundraiser in the past, please take a few minutes to review the attached frequently asked questions (FAQ) document with more details.  Here are the highlights:

  • We partner with Centerplate, the concession vendor at Tropicana field, to work concession stands at Tampa Bay Rays’ baseball games.  We receive a percentage of the stand’s proceeds or $50 per volunteer (whichever is greater).  This is a great way for you, your student and family members to earn money toward the annual band fees.  Volunteers earn a minimum of $50 per game worked (last year volunteers averaged over $73 per game) and 100% of the money earned goes toward your student’s band fees.
  • Volunteers must be over the age of 16 and complete the appropriate orientation, training and background screening as outlined in the attached FAQ document.  In addition, volunteers need to be able to perform the required functions which include a significant amount of walking and standing throughout a 6-8 hour shift.
  • Required volunteer training sessions will be held throughout March at Tropicana field (see dates below).  If you are interested in participating in this fundraiser, reply to this email with the information requested above and let me know what training dates you would like to attend.  I will get you signed up for training and provide additional details.

For active volunteers:

If you volunteered last year, you will not be required to attend orientation again.  We are strongly encouraging all volunteers who are over 18 to attend the alcohol service training.  Certificates are good for 3 years, so if you attended this training in the past you may not be required to attend again.

If you are interested in volunteering again this year:

  • Email Sarah Masi with the information requested above to let her know you will be volunteering again and confirming your student and contact information.
  • Review the 2017 program updates document provided by Centerplate
  • Review the active volunteer list and make sure your name is listed.  If there is not a date in the alcohol certification column, this means we do not have an active certificate on file for you and you may need to attend this training.  There are a few sessions available in March (see dates below) and also additional opportunities to certify online (for a cost). Let Sarah know if you need to sign up for this training.
