IRVINGTON SUMMER MUSIC SERIES NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Most importantly, organizers need a few people with skills in marketing and promotion to take over the social media and advertising needs for the series. If you have skills in any of these areas and would like to help make this series successful (and earn the dying gratitude of your neighbors), please let us know as soon as possible. Contact Stan Denski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Volunteers are needed to help set up and tear down equipment for each show, as well as answer questions, help with directions, tickets, parking, and so on. If you’d like to help out, contact Stan Denski at email@example.com.
Irvington Summer Music Series is made possible with funding provided by Historic Irvington Community Council. Individual and business sponsorships are also available. Please contact Stan Denski at firstname.lastname@example.org for sponsorship details.
