We are looking for 50-50 volunteer sellers who are 19 years of age or older. 50-50 volunteers will have free admittance into the games (sellers are done at the end of half time so you'd be able to watch the rest of the game); a little cash for a snack; and if you have to pay a bridge toll, we will cover that expense for you. Best of all, by volunteering, you'll be supporting amateur lacrosse athletes from across the Province of BC!
You can sign up for one game or all nine, so please send me an e-mail email@example.com to let me know which game(s) you're willing to help:
