All-In for Arthritis began in 2018 and is the signature fundraising event for the Arthritis Society in London. The luxurious black-tie event features a professionally-run poker tournament, high-end casino gaming tables, decadent food stations, live entertainment, and a premium silent auction. The focus of the event is to highlight the Stop Childhood Arthritis Initiative that will benefit the 24,000 children and their families that live with childhood arthritis – including those children in London-Middlesex. We are looking 1 – 3 community volunteers to focus on the procurement and organization of our silent auction. Most of the work will be independent, allowing the volunteer to work when convenient for them. Leads will stay in contact with Staff Liaison, and attend approximately 3 of the Host Committee Meetings to provide updates. Assets: Auction Leads should have some personal contacts that they can negotiate to secure some auction prizing. Leads must be comfortable contacting business owners by phone/email/in person to secure additional items. Leads will attend the October Gala, assisting with the set-up/display of the auction and providing leadership to day-of volunteers helping with cash-out procedures. I’d be happy to provide additional information to any interested parties.
