We are having a special event on Saturday, October 15 from 6-9pm called Night at the Museum; it’s a fundraising event to help create scholarship opportunities for low income students so that all students can experience hands-on STEM education. We were hoping to get in contact with any student organizations within the Department of Hospitality Leadership that might be interested in volunteer opportunities for that evening, specifically working with our vendors at their food stations. We are looking for energetic students that want to learn about the operation of large special events from a hands-on, first-hand experience. This is a unique opportunity for students to meet major donors and industry leaders of Springfield, and we would love for Hospitality Leadership students to be a part of this. Feel free to give me a call or send an email if I can answer any further questions—I look forward to hearing from you soon.
