Every two years, ESPS provides volunteer staffing at Casino Edmonton on Argyll Road. In exchange for two long days of work by about 40 volunteers, ESPS earns a cheque for approximately $75,000 from the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission.
That’s a lot of money, and it goes a long way towards subsidizing concert hall rentals, costs for group classes, professional development for teachers, and piano equipment and maintenance.
Working as a casino volunteer is a substantial time commitment for volunteers. That’s why, when you volunteer at the casino, it counts as your volunteer commitment for two years. Essentially, ESPS casino volunteers receive a free pass from volunteering every second year.
The dates for ESPS’ next casino are Thursday November 15 and Friday November 16, 2018. We’re looking for volunteers to work in daytime and evening shifts. No experience is necessary to volunteer – a paid casino advisor is on hand to guide you through every aspect of the job. We’ll buy you a meal at the casino restaurant, and you’ll have a chance to meet and work with other excellent ESPS parents. Some of you have already signed up to volunteer, and we thank you!
If you haven’t volunteered this year, please take the time to consider whether you might be available for this very important event. To sign up to volunteer or for more information please contact Kim at 780.488.0548 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
