Volunteer and WIN! at the Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival

July 6, 2010

Now, compliment of Rogers (the Festival’s Presenting Sponsor) you can volunteer at the 2010 Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival and win!

Thanks to the generous support of Rogers, we are excited to announce that there will be a special prize draw for volunteers at the 2010 Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival!  Rogers has donated a High Definition Personal Video Recorder (HD-PVR; retail price $500) to give away to one lucky volunteer.  With an HD-PVR, you can pause, rewind and play “live” TV, order Rogers On Demand programming, and watch you favorite pre-recorded, high-definition television whenever you want!

Here’s how the contest will work.

Your name will be entered into the draw once for every volunteer position you hold between Monday, July 12 and Sunday, July 18.  Which means, if you volunteer on Wednesday night at the Martini Bar and then again at Bowring Park Amphitheatre on Saturday, your name will be entered into the draw twice. Transportation, administration and logistics crewmembers will also be included in the draw.

That means the more often you volunteer, the better your chances will be of winning the prize!  The random draw will be done at the Volunteer Party following the festival, with time, date and location to be determined.

The good news:  there are still lots of opportunities to volunteer with the Festival!  To get involved, email adam@wreckhousejazzandblues.com or call Adam at 739-7734.  And remember, the more you volunteer, the more chances you will have to win!

Check out the following tables at which there is still volunteer space available:
