Volunteer at the Swim Drink Fish Gala

Volunteer at one of Canada's biggest nights in water stewardship. The Swim Drink Fish Gala returns to Vancouver on Saturday, September 28th. Two hundred prominent artists, musicians, philanthropists, and business leaders will gather at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia for an extraordinary night filled with fine art, inspiring performances, powerful storytelling, and gourmet food and drink.

We are looking for outgoing and passionate volunteers to make this event one to remember. Some of the tasks include welcoming and checking in guests, auction support, and photo assistance.

Prior to the event, we will hold an information session to ensure you feel prepared and excited about the evening.

We are looking forward to welcoming you on as a volunteer and getting your support on this magical night, all in the name of protecting our waters. 

Please sign up for your shift by September 4th and don't hesitate to get in touch with Molly O'Ray, Vancouver Program Manager, at molly@swimdrinkfish.ca if you have any questions.
