Celebrating Our Volunteers!

Celebrating Our Volunteers!

The Cultch depends on our amazing volunteers to keep us going so once a year, we throw a party/BBQ to honour and thank all of our 175+ wonderful volunteers! Whether they’re working in the Front of House as ushers, in the administration office as receptionists, or helping us stuff letters in envelopes during our crazy subscription season, our volunteers are truly the best and we couldn’t do what we do without them!

This year, local indie rock band Parlour Panther provided tunes to dance to, Choices Markets provided delicious food to enjoy, and so many generous organizations and businesses donated gifts to give away to our volunteers as prizes. Here are some photos from the party:

OUR ANNUAL VOLUNTEER BBQ: Celebrating an amazing year!

The end of the season is a special time here at The Cultch. It’s a time where we can reflect on all the amazing events that happened in our venues, and it’s also the time where we can express thanks to the people that helped make it happen – our volunteers.

On July 9, we honoured the 130+ volunteers who gave their time this past year by throwing a Volunteer Appreciation Barbecue. More than 4253 volunteer hours were contributed in total for the 14/15 season.With mother nature providing some amazing set dressing, we set up the BBQ out front of The Cultch and kicked back in the courtyard. After the ‘Name Tag Follies’, some mingling, and some fun with our makeshift photo booth, everybody enjoyed some delicious food graciously provided by Choices Market.

Check out these wonderful photos from the event below and if you or someone you know is interested in volunteering at The Cultch please contact zoe@thecultch.com.
