IGNITE the NITE – Boston GLOW’s annual fundraising gala Volunteering Opportunity

Who: Energetic, engaged and empowered individuals who want to volunteer

What: IGNITE the NITE – Boston GLOW’s annual fundraising gala. The event will include cocktails and appetizers, live music, a silent auction and more. 

Volunteer Roles: We are definitely in need of volunteers to help set-up Thursday 2/27 (12pm-5pm) and/or break-down Friday 2/28 (10am-12pm). But we are willing to work with volunteers’ personal schedules, we don’t want to turn anyone away who wants to help out!

Where: Artists For Humanity (100 W. 2nd Street Boston 02127 near the Broadway T stop on the Red Line)

Why: It’s great that volunteers get to attend the event for free and 2 free drink tickets, but more importantly volunteers will have an inspiring time supporting a great organization that empowers females of all ages!
