Join our annual fundraising Ball committee!
AWARE is on the lookout for volunteers to join in the Big Ball committee this year! The annual AWARE Ball, which will be held at the prestigious St Regis Hotel this year, is our fundraising gala event where we dress to the nines and raise money for a great cause. This year’s Ball will be held on 24 September, and will be organised by a committee of dedicated, creative and passionate individuals. If you think you can contribute in any way, sign-up to be a committee member!
Are you passionate about fundraising?
If sourcing for in-kind or cash sponsorships excites you, then we would love for you to be on board! The Big Ball is crucial for AWARE’s annual budget, raising it by up to a quarter every year. We want individuals who are passionate about selling our cause to potential sponsors and in-kind gift donors for the Auction and Lucky Dip that will happen at the event.
Are you creative and imaginative?
Our committee members are involved in curating an exciting theme and programme for the night so that our guests are thoroughly entertained during the Big Ball – and yes, this includes brainstorming and approaching entertainment acts that you think would be a good fit for the event! Some of the themes from previous years include the fiery Big Birthday Ball, the very shimmery Crystal Ball and the Big Red Ball.
Are you energetic and enthusiastic?
If you’re up for having a good time while getting everyone fired up in support of our cause, we want you! Our committee members get a chance to socialise with high-profile attendees and gain as much support for our work as possible.
Are you great at communicating?
Fancy yourself confident, charismatic and charming? Part of the work of our committee members is communicating our aims and goals to sponsors, donors and guests. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Our committee members should continue to be steadfast and persevere to get as a record-breaking number of sponsors and donations! Up for the challenge?
Do you love working in a team?
We want you to have fun while planning the Big Ball. And the zany and fun Ball committee will not disappoint!
Are you committed to gender equality?
As a committee member, you’re a representative of AWARE. If you share the same burning passion to for the cause of gender equality and human rights as we do, then this is an opportunity not to be missed!
Are you AVAILABLE?
With great power, comes great responsibility (and time). We need you to be available for 6 hours per month in April and May, 12 hours per month in June and August and a whole day at St Regis on 24th Sept 2016. Think you can handle it? Then join our team!
If you check all these boxes, then sign up by 15 April. We look forward to working with you!
