***UPDATE: There will NOT be a meeting on Monday, 3/19. Meeting will however resume the following Monday, 3/26***
WHEN: Every Monday at 6:30pm, come to the Riverfest Committee Meeting at the Argos Cement Plant (formerly LaFarge), 2520 Paul Avenue, at the building immediately to the left of the entrance.
It is important for neighbors to help this year to make Riverfest 2012 the biggest and best event ever. We need help recruiting Sponsors, Vendors, obtaining Silent Auction items, and volunteers the day of the event.
Riverfest 2012 is just around the corner. This year will be the fourth annual, family friendly fundraiser event and will benefit Riverwalk Atlanta, a new park on the Chattahoochee River, IN RIVERSIDE. The event will be held on Saturday, May 12, beginning at 12 noon until 10pm at the Argos Cement Plant (formerly LaFarge), 2520 Paul Avenue NW, Atlanta Georgia 30318.
To help with Sponsors, please assist us to connect with your employer, or people you know in other companies. A warm introduction helps to get the appointment, to share the vision and explain the benefits.
Vendors make the event more interesting. Do you have a neighbor or a friend who makes crafts, art, or a service they would like to sell and advertise?
The Silent Auction is another opportunity for companies and people to donate items or services to help our fund raising efforts.
We also need help for set up the day before, and for clean up the day after the event. Many different volunteers are also needed the day of the event. From checking in sponsors and vendors, to selling beer, selling Riverside garb, water, sodas, people to supervise the bouncy houses, VIP services and more.
If you can’t make the meeting, please contact Keith Sharp, 678-778-8774 about sponsor levels and opportunities, and Cindy Poortinga, 404-227-2876 for information about becoming a vendor. If you are able to help the day of the event or the day before or after please email your hours of availability, job preferred, and questions to Keith Sharp <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
The time is here to do something really great for Riverside and the surrounding areas, get to know your neighbors and have a great memory for us all to be proud of. Thank you for your participation.
