Special Events


The UAF development department is responsible for fundraising. We have two major fundraising events: our annual Oscar Night Gala in February and the Salt Lake AIDS walk in September. We also have special events surrounding HIV/AIDS education during World AIDS Day in December, and at the Utah Pride Festival in June. Volunteers are needed to staff each of these events, as well as serve on committees to plan the events.


Positions on the day of these events may include: drivers and movers, set up, logistics, food service, team coordinators, registration, ticket takers, crossing guards, hosting, project coordinators, etc... Volunteers are also needed for the planning committees for some of these events as well.

Event specific. Shifts are flexible.


Special events are a lot of fun to plan and scheduling is flexible. Serving on an event planning committee is a great way to meet other volunteers.  These committees are temporary: they meet for several months before the event, and are good for volunteers who know they have time to volunteer for a few months, but aren‘t sure what their schedules will be like after that.  You‘ll also have the satisfaction of seeing all of your work culminate in an exciting public event.
