Buick Invitational Volunteers

Helicopter Ball Drop volunteers needed at the Buick Invitational! Come join this wonderful event. The Century Club and the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department are requesting volunteers to sell golf balls and promote the Helicopter Ball Drop during tournament week (Jan. 23-29) of the 2006 Buick Invitational. This unique fundraiser benefits the San Diego Regional Fire and Rescue Helicopter Program. The 2nd Annual Helicopter Ball Drop will take place on Sunday, January 29 (around 4:00 p.m.) on the 4th Fairway of the North Course at Torrey Pines. Thousands of numbered golf balls will be dropped from the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department's Copter 1. The ball that goes in the hole or closest to the pin will win the Grand Prize.

We also still need a few extra volunteers for the concession stands. Help raise money for Volunteer San Diego by signing up for one of these shifts.

All volunteers will receive a daily ticket for the tournament and parking pass.

Dr. Martin Luther King Day of Service

Volunteer San Diego's SAVY Leaders are planning our Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Day of Service. Following the example of Dr. King, the SAVY Leaders are taking a non-violent stand for their right to a well-rounded education that includes quality academic as well as art and sports programs.Join us at a community fair featuring up to 19 different art and athletic booths and clinics. At these booths, youth from the community will learn and try activities their schools might not be able to provide. Admission is free and we encourage volunteers and participants to support our local schools by bringing school related items to the event to donate.

To participate, come to Balboa park anytime between 1-4 p.m. We will be on the lawn at Park Blvd. and Presidents Way. Volunteers will be needed to assist with setting up and taking down the community fair, as well as assisting with arts and athletic activities.
