Churchill Downs Fundraising Opportunity

Sign-up Link

Spend time on “Millionaires Row” at Churchill Downs and make money for the band – no wagering required!

What:
Be a Meat-Carver in the “premium” areas of Churchill Downs, like Millionaire’s Row

When:
Saturday, June 17 or Sunday, June 18 or Friday, June 30

Who:
Anyone 18 years of age and older

Why:
Churchill Downs will donate $125 per person per shift to the band (each shift is 6 to 8 hours long)!

The Details:
Churchill Downs has 60 openings for each of the above dates for Lafayette Band volunteers to become “Meat-Carvers”. Yes, you read that correctly! Picture the chef’s hat with the big fork and knife. That could be you! The 17th and 30th are “Downs After Dark” – their very popular night racing. The 18th is Father’s Day afternoon racing. 

The meat carver position is for a 6 to 8 hour shift. Training is provided at the beginning of the shift – no previous experience required. There is also a short online training that is required prior to participation. For the 17th and 30th dates, you must arrive at 2:00pm. On the 18th, arrival time is 10am. You receive your chef’s hat and jacket upon arrival. You must wear black pants, black socks, and black shoes. You receive training and they divide up into small groups (4 to 10 usually). All Lafayette band volunteers will be inside in the “premium” sections of Churchill Downs like Millionaires Row. Your shift is over when the food section is closed down. They will also provide you with a free meal at the end of the shift. Typical shift will end at 8:00 or 9:00 for the night races, 10:00 at the latest. For the 18th afternoon races, shift ends between 4:00 and 6:00. 

For each person who works a shift, they will donate $125 to the band! Yes, you read that right – $125 per person per shift! This is an unbelievable opportunity to make substantial amounts of money for the band. Consider signing up for one or more shifts –  let’s fill as many open spots as possible!

Please sign up for this fun and unique opportunity here. Deadline to sign up is Friday, June 2! After you sign up, we will email the link for you to complete the on-line training.
