Want to help organize our annual Ice Cream Social?

I'm looking for a friendly volunteer that would like to help plan our annual "Ice Cream to the People" fundraiser, scheduled for June 30, 2011 at El Rio. No event planning experience required. You should be outgoing and feel comfortable talking to local businesses about Produce to the People, and asking for donations. Time commitment is flexible- minimal (1-2 hours a week) through March and April, and will increase (up to 3-5 hours a week) in May and June as we start picking up donations, publicizing the event, organizing volunteers, creating signage, etc.

Responsibilities include:
--Chatting up local businesses and makers via email, phone, and in person, for gift certificates for our raffle and items for our silent auction. Items and gift certificates have typically been focused on the local food movement in San Francisco.
--Picking up donations for raffle and silent auction, ice cream and toppings!
--Event publicity, posting event details on listservs and local event listings, posting and dropping flyers off around town
--Creating any signage and displays for the event
--Organizing volunteers for the event
--Helping out at the event (this will be minimal work, and mostly fun!)

If you're interested, please contact Lauren at producetothepeople@gmail.com, with a brief description of your interests in Produce to the People, helping with the event, any relevant experience, and your availability. Formal resumes are not necessary.

Thank you!
