The 25th Annual Harvest Wine Celebration is this weekend (Sunday and Monday from noon to 5 p.m.), pretty much the biggest visitor weekend in our local wine country, and the Livermore Valley Winegrowers Association needs volunteers. You’ll get into the event for free, check out the 35 wineries and their entertainment, and munch on yummy food. Plus you get a free recognition dinner afterwards. Not bad at all! Here’s the gig:
Friendly, outgoing volunteers serve as Wine Country Ambassadors, riding in air-conditioned shuttle buses and talking about the Livermore Valley and winery stops on that route. Detailed scripts will list fun facts about the winery activities, what wines are being poured, musical entertainment, vendors, etc. Customer service oriented volunteers will serve on the Logistics Team, working at the main transportation hub and transfer stations providing information to guests. Volunteers receive a VOLUNTEER event T-shirt, free tickets to the Harvest Wine Celebration, and a Volunteer Recognition Dinner after the event. To volunteer, please call 925.447.WINE(9463).
