Events Coordinator Volunteer

United Way is looking for an events coordinator volunteer! We need someone, or multiple people, who are detail-oriented to work alongside our Community Relations Manager to plan our Over The Edge celebration event. Over The Edge is a unique peer-to-peer fundraising event where individuals raise $1,000 to rappel off of the top of Towers South on Southeast Missouri State University’s campus. This event is being held on May 20th, 2022.

We are seeking help for our celebration event on May 18th from 5-7:30 PM. This event is a celebration for our Edgers to give them the encouragement they need to rappel on Friday. We will use this opportunity to thank all of our Edgers for their fundraising, the donors for their contributions, sponsors for their investment, and volunteers for the hard work they are about to do Friday as well.

We are looking for someone or multiple people who are experienced in event planning to help us plan and execute this event for May 18th, 2022. We are well underway with planning and are in the process of contacting vendors, we are just looking for a little extra help!

Responsibilities may include:

  • Communicating with volunteer groups to acquire needed volunteers
  • Communicating with vendors such as catering, band, rentals, etc.
  • Communicating with UWSEMO staff for any additional needs
