CASINO Volunteers Needed – Nov. 7th & 8th

Every two years we work a casino fundraiser which helps keep the doors of the Irish Centre open – keeping Irish culture alive in Edmonton. The funds raised go to sports, dance, music, building renovations/maintenance, and so much more.

This year we will be working at the Yellowhead Casino located at 153 Street & Yellowhead Trail.

19 Volunteers (age 18+) each day are needed to work all positions (count room, runners, cashiers, etc.)  No experience required; training will be provided, and all time shifts (morning, afternoon, evening and night) over the 2 days are open.

Our aim is to get all the positions filled as soon as possible.  Sign UP! at the following link or call Rory at 780-720-3010.
