Starting in August 2016, the band began offering its volunteers the opportunity to sign up to work events held at the Performing Arts Center, the Raleigh Convention Center, and occasionally Red Hat Amphitheater. This new fundraiser is referred to by the acronym PARCC. For most events at these venues, workers must be adults. There may occasionally be events at which students will be eligible to work. Shifts worked at this venue do not count toward your service credit commitment.
There are many attractive features of this fundraiser, including the following:
·Workers earn a band account credit of $8 for each hour worked.
·These venues run year round, providing additional opportunities to earn band account credits during the slower winter and early spring months.
·The band is not contractually obligated to provide a set number of workers for events, thus avoiding conflicts with band events and other band fundraisers.
·Free parking is provided in the parking deck located beside the Convention Center.
Since many of the events at these venues involve alcohol service, adults wishing to work are required to attend a Centerplate alcohol and venue training session. Centerplate has announced 2 additional training dates in March. If you wish to work these venues, please sign up to attend one of these training dates, as they may be the last offered until next fall:
Thursday, March 23rd from 6 p.m. until approximately 8 p.m. - Exhibit Hall B, Raleigh Convention Center
Saturday, March 25th from 12 p.m. until approximately 2 p.m. - Exhibit Hall B, Raleigh Convention Center
In order to assure that there are enough training materials for everyone in attendance, Centerplate is asking for advance sign up. If you are interested in attending this training session, please sign up no later than Tuesday, March 21 at 5 p.m. using the following link:
