raises $500,000 in one fun filled evening?

Would you like to have a blast volunteering at a premier food and wine event
with a group of your friends, family or coworkers?

Do you share our goal of helping improve the quality of life for individuals with
developmental disabilities in Marin, Sonoma and San Francisco?

If you said yes, we’d like to invite you to commit one evening of your time at Great Chefs & Wineries benefiting Lifehouse. We’re looking for passionate, experienced volunteers, 16 years or older to help make our event a smashing success. It’s because of the contribution of talents from people like you that this event has gained a reputation as one of the Bay Area’s premier food and wine events!

Great Chefs & Wineries will be held on the evening of Saturday, April 22, 2017 at The Clubhouse at Peacock Gap Golf Club in San Rafael. A variety of volunteer positions are available, including: event ambassador, silent auction assistant, guest registration, restaurant and winery assistance, auction payment and pick up and more! We’re introducing mobile bidding to our event this year, and many of our volunteer roles will require knowledge of mobile device use. If you are skilled in navigating smart phones and other tech gadgets, we’re looking for you!

If you’d like to volunteer, please complete the online form below. There’s sure to be a job to fit any interest and skill. To ensure a successful event, our volunteers are kindly asked to commit to a six hour shift. Most shifts occur during the event from 4:00pm to 11:00 pm with a break.

Positions are limited and fill quickly, so don’t wait too long to let us know you’d like to join us. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for your interest in this event and your support to Lifehouse Agency. We look forward to working with you!
