Sign up to volunteer for Pride 2011 now

Sign up now as more than 300 people are needed to volunteer for Pride 2011.

Starting in May, volunteers can do three-to-four hour shifts in exchange for a ticket.

“Volunteers are the most important part of the team,” said Josh Jacoby, Pride Director. “We couldn’t do the event without them.”

To get the work and time slot wanted, volunteers should sign up now.

To be held on Saturday, June 4th, volunteers can start handing out flyers and postcards at various Sacramento farmers’ markets and Second Saturday in May.

On Friday evening, June 3, volunteers can help set up the stages, fencing and other necessities at Capitol Mall near Tower Bridge.

On Saturday, they are needed to:
• set up the Parade on Saturday morning at the staging area on S Street and 5th,
• monitor the route up 5th Street to the festival near Tower Bridge.
• sell tickets at the festival grounds,
• work the beverage booths,
• manage the stages for the entertainment,
• help with the dance pavilion, the exhibitors, vendors and festival goers during the actual event.

People also are needed for tear-down on Saturday after the party closes at 6 p.m.

Volunteers also receive the love and admiration of the community as well as a Pride t-shirt.

Sacramento Pride is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Sacramento Gay & Lesbian Center..
