PAY OFF 2020-21 FAIR SHARE & TRIP FEES THE FUN & EASY WAY
by volunteering at River Cats and Golden 1 Arena Events
[Note: At this time, no current volunteer events are planned.
Future events will be announced. Please stay tuned.]

Did you know you can earn enough credits to pay annual Fair Share
Fees by working as few as five or six volunteer shifts at these events.
If you don’t want to spread it out over the five or six events, consider
bringing a group (such as family members or friends) and together
you can earn enough credits in one event. How easy and fun is that?
But there’s more! Volunteer for more shifts and earn credits for
travel costs when the band goes on its big trips.

WHO SAYS FUNDRAISING CAN’T BE FUN?

Earn money to offset your Fair Share of trip fees. It’s easy!
As a volunteer at a King’s game, Golden 1 Arena concert or
event, or River Cats game, you can earn between $60-75
per shift, per person. A family of four (volunteers must be 18
or over) can easily earn $240-300 in one shift, which will
put a huge dent into paying your Fair Share Fee or trip costs.
Text JFKBAND2 to 81010 for upcoming volunteer opportunities,
or check out our fun Fundraising page. You’ll be glad you did!
