Looking for ways to give back and support one of Calgary's founding artist-run centres? The New Gallery (TNG) has taken on bingo fundraisers to support programming at our ancillary space, the John Snow House (JSH). This space houses TNG's extensive archives and library, which covers everything from artist-run culture in Calgary dating back to 1975 to current, contemporary art periodicals and magazines.
JSH is a multipurpose space; besides being a functioning archive, the JSH hosts a variety of cultural events and is in its second year of the Artist in Residence (AiR) program! For more information on this exciting project, please visit our website at: http://www.thenewgallery.org/programs
Now that you know a little more about the important space that your valuable volunteer time is supporting, let's get back to bingo talk!
The bingo fundraisers take place at the Grey Eagle Casino in the SW near Mount Royal. Carpooling is always available if transportation is an issue! All training is provided at the start of your shift. I’d also like to mention that half shifts (4:30-9:30pm or 9pm-12:30am) are available for any Evening/Late Night bingo events, but full shifts are encouraged whenever possible. Upcoming events are as follows:
-Monday, October 1, 2012 4:30pm-12:30am
-Saturday, November 3, 2012 4:30pm-12:30am
We'd like to reiterate a few points...
-No previous training or experience is needed! That all happens at the beginning of your volunteer shift so you're comfortable in your role,
-No transportation? No problem! In order to maximize fundraising success, TNG will organize carpooling (If you drive and are interested in picking up volunteers in your area, let me know!)
-We want you to keep your energy up, so we provide you with a meal during your shift
-You are vital to the success of this fundraiser, at our bingos and casinos, we need a certain amount of volunteers for the event to even start; we couldn't do it without all your help!
-You are supporting a very exciting, new space in Calgary that needs your help to raise operational costs in it's fledgling years!
*Important Note: This is a smoking environment
Please contact TNG's Administrative Director, Su Ying Strang by phone: 403.233.2399 or by e-mail: email@example.com to be put on the volunteer schedule.
Thank you for all your support!
