CI needs help contacting local businesses to get unique outdoor gear, art, wine, restaurant gift certificates, vacation packages, and eco-friendly products and services donated for its auction, event sponsorships, and/or tax-deductible donations. Finally, CI needs people to help coordinate the event logistics based on your core-competency/interest, such as designing marketing materials, ticket sales, registration/check-in, check-out, media releases, etc.
