The 2020 Gillette fundraising season will kick off this year with a Monster Energy Supercross event on April 18. We have committed to 34+ events this year, including ALL Patriots home games – preseason, regular season and playoffs – as well as several NE Revolution and international soccer games, concerts by Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Rammstein and Justin Bieber, and other special events! 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!
For the 2020 Gillette season, the MBPA will offer DOUBLE CREDITS – that’s $50!! – to all first-time volunteers. We are hoping to see lots of new faces this season!
Here’s how it will work: When a first-time volunteer arrives at Gillette, s/he will write their name on the MBPA sign in sheet. The first timer will assign the credits to a band/color guard/percussion student.
First time MBPA student volunteers should write their own name down. If a student recruits a first-time volunteer who is not a band/percussion/color guard student, the first-time volunteer should write down the name of the student who recruited them.
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!
