Volunteers of the Month: June 2008
Croquet Invitational Volunteers  

                  Members of The Croquet Invitational Event Committee

This month we are acknowledging the 150 volunteers who were integral in helping to make The Croquet Invitational and Charity Auction a huge success! There is no way we could have put on this event without them. Many people helped us in the days and weeks prior to the event by helping in the office and picking up auction items. On the day before the event volunteers assembled guest packages, arranged table place settings, stacked chairs, and helped with several other jobs in near 100° heat. Saturday required almost 100 volunteers providing front line and behind-the-scenes support for every element of the event - set up, registration, silent auction, live auction, parking, ice and water delivery, and cheerleading! Many from our corps of active volunteers brought family, friends and significant others to help as well, which made a world of difference! Among the people who generously offered their time were volunteers from several Bay Area companies who are so supportive of our mission. A special thanks to the teams from Morton’s The Steakhouse (San Francisco and San Jose locations); Barclays Global Investments; Accenture; and the California State Automobile Association.   Finally, we want to thank our Event Committee who worked diligently for months to help plan and execute this incredible event.
