Volunteers Needed for Bikes, Blues, & BBQ


The Children's Safety Center is looking for volunteers to work the beer garden in the Walton Arts Center parking lot on Dickson Street, Thursday night, September 25th from 7-11pm. After the expenses from the rally are paid, the Bikes, Blues, & BBQ committee and board decide which charities the left over money is distributed to based on a grant application. The volunteer component plays a major role in the amount of funds we receive so every volunteer counts! And you get a free shirt!!! If you are able to come help, if even for an hour, email CSC Development Director Emily Rappe'

Volunteers are needed on every day and night of the rally as well. You can volunteer anytime and still help the CSC. Just write down that you are with the Children's Safety Center when you sign in. Go to to sign up to volunteer.
