Calgary Boys’ Choir VOLUNTEER INFORMATION 2022-2023 Season

 

We are able to keep our tuition prices low and provide an enriched program experience for our choristers through the help of our wonderful volunteers. Our volunteer bond and time commitment expectations are lower than many other organizations, but essential to our success and survival! Remember that parents, grandparents and friends can all contribute to the bond required hours on your chorister’s behalf.  Each chorister family is required to fulfill 2 bingo shifts, a Casino shift ( November 3-4, 2022) and additional volunteering.  

 

  •  I will provide a Volunteer and Bingo/Casino Bond deposit in the form of a post-dated cheque of $500 made out to Calgary Boys’ Choir, post-dated June 1, 2023.  

  • I do not have cheques and will provide the $500 bond in cash or a bank draft (please contact me to discuss)

  • I understand and agree to have my  Volunteer and Bingo/Casino Bond cashed on June 1, 2023 if I do not attend 2 bingo shifts  and 1 casino this season or find another volunteer to attend these 3 events in my place.

  • In addition to bingo and/or casino shifts, additional volunteering time is required in the 2022-2023 choral season.
