Others may help refill ice tubs and supplies throughout the event. All of these job are very important for making the event run smoothly and we greatly appreciate your help with all of these volunteer stations.
We allow all of our volunteers to taste the products they will be pouring before the event begins so that you will know what to suggest when patrons ask for a recommendation. Under No Circumstances, may volunteers over indulge. If over indulgence on site is apparent or suggested, the volunteer will be immediately removed from the event.
