Volunteer for the DAC 25th Anniversary Gala

Destiny is planning a major fundraising event on Saturday, May 17th, 2014, to celebrate its fabulous 25 years of work with our youth and to help ensure that work can continue into the future.

The Anniversary Benefit Gala will include a pre-dinner VIP reception, a catered dinner, and an after-dinner dance party. Click here to learn more.

We need 100 volunteers to make this event a success! Our volunteer efforts will directly support our fundraising event which will provide over 800 classes for over 4,000 children this year throughout Oakland and the East Bay, particularly in schools and communities with little or no access to the arts. So please check your calendar and sign up for a shift.

We’ll need help all day long, with everything from setting up to staffing registration tables, to serving beverages and desserts. If you have skills as a photographer, or can lift 40 pounds and help with tech set-up, we have jobs for you. You must be 21 or over to serve alcohol. Otherwise, no special talents are required. Those who work 4 hours or more will receive a special Destiny thank-you gift!

Destiny succeeds in instilling a sense of respect for fellow human beings.
