Come Volunteer With Us!

Our Event:
The Gala 2018 is a women’s gymnastics competition for athletes of all ages. The event is being organized and run by three partners: Diane Thompson, Karen Pleasants and Jessica Harris, who share a wealth of experience as judges, coaches and former athletes. This annual event has become a large competitive opportunity for gymnasts of all levels from all over the Southeast region and beyond.

We need your support:
For each of the three days, we will be recruiting 12-15 volunteers for three to four sessions each day. There will be a variety of options for volunteers including selling programs, hospitality for coaches and judges, judges’ assistants, event timers, and organizing awards. We would also welcome assistance with securing sponsorships, recruiting donations and selling program ads in advance of the event. No knowledge of gymnastics is necessary and training requirements will be minimal. If you’ve never attended a gymnastics event, this is your opportunity to interact with some top level gymnasts, judges and coaches in a fun and healthy environment.

A typical session lasts for approximately three hours and you can do one or more sessions. Of course, the more the better! There will be a short application on our website that will ask for your availability and areas of special interest. We value our volunteers and want this to be a good experience for you. We’ll provide an event t-shirt for you to wear on the day of the event, and you’ll be invited to join us for a meal before or after your volunteer assignment. Let’s work together to make The Gala a premier event in Asheville each January!
