What could be better - craft beer, NYC's finest street food and all for a good cause!

Shifts: 9am - 2pm or 1pm - 6pm
We need lots of help to kick off summer with Brewers’ PicNyc over Memorial Day weekend on Governors Island. This is going to be a HUGE event focused on amazing food vendors and local craft beer along with ongoing entertainment and activities for families.
We’re looking for people to help out with greeting, ticket taking, some set up (hanging signs etc.) assisting chefs, assisting with crowd maintenance and lines and generally working to make the event run smoothly.
Volunteers should be 21+ and will receive limited edition t-shirts, admission to the event, and food and drink tickets.
Please contact Erin McMonagle at email@example.com with Brewers’ PicNyc Volunteer in the subject header, and stating what date and shift you would like to work.
