Having a hard time deciding what to do this New Year’s Eve? Tired of doing the same thing year after year? Mix it up this year and come support your community while volunteering for the first annual Light Up Eau Claire event in downtown Eau Claire! You may be asking yourself why you would give up your hard-earned hours of vacation to volunteer, but you’ll be surprised by the benefits you’ll reap from just a few FUN hours of volunteering!
1. A TRULY UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
This is the first year Eau Claire has celebrated NYE in this big of a way, and how cool would it be to be able to say that you participated in it? You have the opportunity to help out at what will certainly become one of Eau Claire’s favorite traditions! You will get to witness this spectacular night up close and personal by volunteering at the music venues, the two parades, or warming up by the fire at the Eau Claire-Stream.
2. HELPING YOUR COMMUNITY
Aside from the stories you’ll be able to tell after volunteering at Light Up Eau Claire, you will also be helping build a community that works together. Volunteering makes you feel all warm-and-fuzzy inside, and at an event like this, you’ll have a great time doing it. With the help of dedicated community members like you, the night will be enjoyable for all and you’re certain to make meaningful connections with other individuals who want to see this community thrive. Each shift is only a couple of hours, so you will still be able to enjoy your night out with friends, family, and the Eau Claire community.
3. FREE ACCESS
Yep, you read that right! Volunteers will get a FREE Light Up Eau Claire pin, music venue wristband, and firework-viewing tent wristband, for just a couple hours of your time. If you work a "late shift" (any shifts that last until midnight or later), you will receive a bottle of champagne, courtesy of Visit Eau Claire! Talk about a Happy New Year!! If you didn’t think volunteering could get any better, guess again. This is well over a $20 value, but FREE for you, if you volunteer! All the more reason to sign up now!
