Halfway to our Goal for Fundraising and Volunteers for SouthFest on June 5–But Almost No Volunteers from 1-3AM!

Thank you to the parents who have volunteered so far to help out at SouthFest! From 11-1, we are doing pretty well. But there are still open slots we need to fill. We need 3 more volunteers for the casino (2 for Blackjack and 1 at the Wheel of Fortune). We definitely could use a few more chaperones as well (especially in the area of the inflatables!) Right now, we can not run SouthFest beyond 1AM. We have no volunteers in the casino, and almost no chaperones during that time. It will not be possible (or safe) to keep SouthFest going after 1AM if we do not fill more volunteer slots. We hope that we will be able to keep the party going until 3AM as planned, but with just over a week to go, it’s not looking very good.

We appreciate the donations we have received so far but we still need a lot more financial support. We have raised about $8,000 so far, halfway to our goal of $16,000.  We have been trying in the last few years to expand our entertainment options to give the seniors lots of reasons to stay at SouthFest. We have a casino, inflatables, tattoo artists and psychics, a mini race track, a green screen photo area, and sports arcade games.  We are grateful for donations of any amount to help us make SouthFest possible.
