Hi guys wanted to share with you an opportunity to volunteer in the community.

Good afternoon,
My name is Lindsey Badanjak and I’m the Special Events Coordinator at the Alliance for Positive Health, formerly the AIDS Council of Northeastern New York. I wanted to reach out to you today because I’m looking for volunteers for our upcoming event, Dining Out For Life, on Thursday, April 23rd, and thought that your members might like to get involved.

Dining Out For Life is our largest and most far-reaching special event that takes place in restaurants across the Capital Region. Restaurants get on board by committing a percentage of their sales to us on that day, and we in turn help to promote the restaurant and make it as busy as possible. To do that, we recruit Volunteer Ambassadors who are matched to a restaurant and then help to make the restaurant as busy as possible by inviting their friends, family, roommates, etc. out to their restaurant that day. Then—on Dining Out For Life day—Ambassadors greet and thank diners, and encourage them to fill out an entry form for our raffle and/or to make an additional donation. It’s that simple! Plus, it’s a very fun and rewarding event that supports people affected by HIV/AIDS and other chronic illnesses in our local community.

We will have 60+ restaurants on board (including some in Troy!) for this year, so I’ll be in need of many friendly and outgoing faces! Is there any chance your members might like to be involved? Ambassadors can be individuals, but are also invited to team up together and be placed at a restaurant together as a duo or small group. Oh, and there will be weekly contests and prizes throughout the campaign. (We will also provide a short training session to help you learn the ropes!)

Please let me know as soon as possible if you’d like to sign up to help. I’d absolutely love to work with you to bring some more excitement to the Troy community!

Thank you! I look forward to connecting with you soon.
