Become a Table Captain

The Gala would not be a success if it weren't for each and every volunteer.  From exciting pre-Gala events, to onsite setup and execution the night of the Gala, over 100 volunteers come together to roll up their sleeves and make the Gala a historic - and fun - event.  

The opportunities to volunteer vary, so there is something for everyone.
