The 2019 Gillette fundraising season will kick off this year on March 24th with a Revolution soccer game, and we have committed to a Tier 1 package of 30+ events through the end of the year. Our package includes ALL Patriots home games – preseason, regular season, and playoffs – as well as a handful of Revolutions Soccer, International Soccer, Concerts, and special events like the SuperCross and Monster Truck shows. Open volunteer positions are filled on a first-come-first-served basis and our Volunteer Lists are typically due to Gillette concessions 10 days in advance of each event – so please sign up as a volunteer early and often so our Gillette coordinators can sleep easier!
After a very successful 2018 season, we need to backfill the frequent contributions of our graduating seniors and their families, and we are in the process of finalizing incentives for “first timers” and “frequent volunteers”. We look forward to seeing some familiar faces and new friends joining us in the booth this year at Gillette.
MBPA’s Gillette coordinator for 2019 is Aaron Nicodemus
Want to know more about the camaraderie of joining up with other band parents for an afternoon or evening of friendly hands-on work for a great cause? Check our How It Works page which helps explain everything 🙂
WHAT IF YOUR STUDENT HAS PRACTICE, A PARADE, OR ANOTHER BAND OBLIGATION AT THE SAME TIME AS A GILLETTE SHIFT?? Please note that where a conflict arises between student band obligations and Gillette, band obligations take precedence over Gillette. Please check the calendar for conflicts before committing your student to a shift at Gillette!
IMPORTANT: Students aged 16 and over may sign up for a shift with the following restrictions – Only 6 student volunteers per event and students are not permitted to work night games on a ‘school night’. Gillette’s rules, not ours, sorry!
