Volunteer for Little Black Dress 2016

I might be interested in volunteering, what is expected of volunteers?
We are asking each volunteer to donate 2+ hours of their time. There are shifts for volunteers prior to the event for general event preparation and street teams to help spread the word for the event, however a majority of the shifts will be for the day of the event for either event set-up or at the event. The time slots will be available on a first-come-first serve basis so the earlier you commit the better chance you will have of getting your first choice. The volunteer positions include: Greeters, Guest Registration, Wine Pouring, Issuing Credentials, Security/Wristbanding, Customer Service, Event Set-Up, etc. Event preparation will be at the Social Connection office in Ferndale and will include organizing guest registration & credentials and stuffing gift bags.

Most volunteer positions require a brief conference call – with 2 dates/times offered so you can choose a time that fits into your schedule.

What do volunteers need to wear?
The attire for Little Black Dress is chic cocktail attire for the ladies and suit or sport coat & tie for the gentlemen. Ladies are welcome to wear their favorite little black dress however you may wear any color dress of your choice.

What do Volunteers Receive?
In addition to knowing you are helping a GREAT cause, volunteers receive general admission entry and are welcome to upgrade to the VIP ticket for the difference of $35. There is also a cash bar available that evening for guests and volunteers.

One in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually abused before their 18th birthdays. These are startling statistics. Almost any child you see could be keeping the terrible secret of their sexual or physical abuse. Nationally, more than 3 million children are reported as victims of abuse each year. In Oakland County thousands of cases of abuse are reported annually.

CARE House believes it shouldn’t hurt to be a child.

CARE House of Oakland County is a safe place where a child’s voice is heard. It’s a place where the darkness of abuse is brought into the light, where children are guided along a path of healing.

Children can’t protect themselves….but we can.

CARE House Services to Children:
Prevention– Community education that teaches adults how to take responsibility for stopping child abuse.
Intervention– When abuse is suspected, CARE House provides a safe place where a child’s voice can be heard.
Treatment– Individual and group therapy to help guide a child on the path to healing.
