Gala & Festival Committee Members Needed Now!
The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council needs you – please consider volunteering to be a part of our committees: The Gala for the Arts Committee or the Shoreline Arts Festival Committee. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to serve on these committees and be involved with the planning process.
Gala Committee Needs | Event Date: Saturday, May 20, 2017
Decorations Lead(s): We are looking for enthusiastic, event loving, individual(s) to help us with overseeing the decorations for the event and includes set-up the day before (5/19). Decorations can be as simple or elaborate as the Decoration Lead(s) wants. Decorations should follow the selected theme inspired by a 1920s speakeasy, and provide a special and memorable atmosphere for the Gala. Table centerpieces (20-24) are usually the main decorated item/area. Other areas of possible additional décor include: entry, bars, wine toss area, dessert tables, etc. In the past decorations have been done for as little as $0 and as much as $800. Being as economical as possible is paramount, but a budget is allowed for décor items. The decoration lead(s) establishes linens colors and decides napkin folding.
Games Lead(s): We are looking for one to two creative individuals to help us with overseeing the planning and implementation of the games for our Gala event, including set-up the day before (5/19). The game line-up has included a raffle, wine ring toss, Heads or Tails, a Golden Ticket drawing…and we are open to creating any new games to compliment this year’s theme.
