Base Camp Bash Committee:

Base Camp Bash 2013We are also looking for volunteers to help plan our annual Base Camp Bash fundraising event held each spring. In terms of a commitment, we are looking for dedicated people who can attend four planning meetings to come up with a game plan, figure out what logistics we need to complete, and put the plan into action. We need everyone help contacting local businesses to get outdoor gear, art, wine, restaurant gift certificates, vacation packages, and eco-friendly products and services donated for the silent auction, event sponsorships, or tax-deductible donations. Finally, we need people to help coordinate the event logistics based on your core-competency/interest, such as designing marketing materials, attendance/ticket sales, media releases, securing a space, food, beverages, entertainment, etc.
