The Prom is ON 2010!!! - volunteers needed


It's that time of year again folks. Mark your calendars cuz on Sunday February 14th you’ll be at THE PEOPLE'S PROM!

“What’s The People's Prom?” you may ask. Only the most kick ass antidote to Valentine’s Day in the city. You like funk and frolic? Love and revolution? Perfect. 80’s beats, valentine treats and dance floor feats await you at the best dance party you’ve been to since grade 10, guaranteed.

But The People’s Prom is more than a party. Each year the money raised goes into The People’s Trust Fund. The money in the Fund is given to one (or several) individuals or groups working on a specific issue. This year, all money raised goes toward grassroot, direct action and creative resistance groups engaged in the resistance to the 2010 Olympics. (Interested? Email peoplesprom@resist.ca or check out our website www.peoplesprom.resist.ca to find out more.)

“Wow! How do you pull of such an amazing feat?” you wonder. “And more importantly, how the hell can I be a part of the party of the year?”


Don’t just come to The People’s Prom – be a part of The People’s Prom. We need people to volunteer in the following areas:

Organize: Be part of the organizing committee, go to the meetings, do the dirty work and get the glory. (K, so there is no glory per se, but you will get bragging rights.)
Set up: Creating the mood is the best part. Come help us decorate.
Door: Greet the kids, take their tickets.
Coat check: Be the first to glimpse the unveiling of hot prom outfits.
Chaperones: Keep the peace, secure the vibe, make sure couples aren't dancing too close.
Bar: Serve booze, keep people happy. Serving It Right preferred.
Spin The Bottle: A giant spin the bottle wheel, with you as cupid!
Mystery Activity: You won't know what hit yah but you'll like it!
Clean up: Help us get our damage deposit back.

Your night will not be entirely taken up with prom responsibilities. You can volunteer for as long or as little as you like, but we’d like you to commit for a minimum of one hour on the night itself. There’ll be plenty of time for drinking and smooching after.

As a volunteer, you will get in free, revolutionise Valentine’s Day, have the satisfaction of being a part of something wonderful and get laid for sure.

Interested? Email peoplesprom@resist.ca to set yourself up.

Thanks so much from the peeps at The People’s Prom.
