Special Event

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Garden of Lights! This event features a half-mile loop of perennial flower beds, huge sculptural flowers, grapevines, butterflies, a holiday village, and other favorite garden creatures – all constructed entirely from holiday lights. Volunteering is a great way to experience this whimsical, twinkling winter wonderland while also giving back to our community. You are more than welcome to sign up for overlapping shifts to stay for the entire evening. Training is provided at the start of the shift. Volunteers must be at least 14 years of age to volunteer alone. Those under the age of 14 may volunteer with a guardian. All outdoor positions will have heaters, access to hand/toe warmers, and indoor break locations. Snacks and hot beverages will be provided. All outdoor volunteers may be assigned to another role if needed. • Lobby Greeter - Monitor exit and flow in the lobby.
