"I would like to thank you all for this special night that was made just for me. I really needed this night and I enjoyed myself. Thank you!"

Each person in your household who would like to volunteer the night of the event (regardless of age) will need to complete the registration process. Any youth desiring to volunteer may do so in a Children's Room (5th grade and younger) or as part of the set up or tear down teams. Children who need care while parent(s) serve may be included with an adult registration.

Specific details about where and when to meet and other important information will be included in the confirmation email you will receive upon registering. With the exception of the set-up team, all serving areas require a background check be performed. The link to complete this will be included in the confirmation email.
