About 20-30 volunteers are needed to help with the Royal Children's Ball in which children K-5 have the opportunity to dress like royalty for the night. The event also has dancing, magic/balloon animals, a hair salon, family portraits, a raffle area, a craft room, gauntlet (kid-friendly obstacle course), and sometimes special guests like Cinderella. This is the DeKalb Youth Service Bureau's biggest fundraiser of the year. They are a non-profit counseling agency providing services throughout DeKalb county. So, this event helps them discount counseling services for those who would not otherwise have access to care.
Volunteers would arrive around 5pm for an orientation for the evening. Possible tasks for the night include: helping clear tables of little hors d'oeuvoures plates/food, helping greet guests and orient them to the check-in table/coat racks, assist in the craft room with coloring and activities, helping children walk through the “gauntlet” activity, help pass out goody bags at the end of the night, and help direct people.
Volunteers are encouraged to dress up as it is a “royal” event in either dressy clothes or period-wear. It’s not required but it helps the evening feel more festive!
Check them out on the Royal Children's Ball Facebook!
