Special Events / Fundraising
ACR Health has a tremendously successful Special Events Department. If you want to help stage a top-notch fundraising event, come share your time and talents as a volunteer with ACR at one or more of our fundraising events, and you'll be working with the pros!
Development offers many opportunities to learn, from initial planning stages of an event, through the follow-up stages of thank you notes and thank you parties. Volunteers help ACR by:
• Generating ideas for fundraising;
• Distributing advertising materials;
• Forming fundraising teams;
• Working with Public Relations and Marketing;
• Assisting with Corporate Solicitations and donations;
• Coordinating setup and breakdown of event displays;
• Acting as traffic directors and hosts; and
• Cleaning up the grounds when the event is completed.
ACR's Special Events Committee helps coordinate fundraising events. We always welcome new members. For more information about volunteering with the Development Department, call 1.800.475.2430, or email us at events@ACRHealth.org
