Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House Charities is seeking volunteers- both adults and students- to assist in the operation of the 23rd Annual Autumn Children’s Festival on Oct. 6-7, at the Tennessee Riverpark.
Those willing to help with set up, clean up, supervision of carnival games, inflatables and parking are needed to ensure the success of this year’s event.
Volunteer shifts are available on Saturday, Oct. 6, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and 1-6 p.m. and on Sunday, Oct. 7, from 12-5 p.m.
The Autumn Children’s Festival attracts 3,000 – 3,500 children and families during the two-day event. It generates approximately $50,000 – $55,000 for Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House Charities each year. More than 350 adult and student volunteers from the Greater Chattanooga area are needed to help with the event planning, set-up, operation and clean-up of the festival every year.
In 2011, the event raised more than $52,000 for the organization which helped pay for operational expenses for Ronald McDonald House and Family Room for approximately 36 days.
