Opera Santa Barbara produces several big fundraising events each year, including our Venetian Carnival, Taste of Opera and our Season Opening Night Gala. We depend on the support of Volunteers to assist with ALL aspects of planning and producing these events. This includes securing auction items, food and beverage donations, decorations and invitations. For most events, volunteers will sit on the Event Planning Committee, attending monthly meetings.
For each of our productions, Opera Santa Barbara hosts a number of parties and special activities during each of our productions. This includes our Preview Party, our Opening Performance Party, our special Impresario Circle table during intermission at each performance, and our Closing Performance Party. We need volunteers to help with acquisition of food/beverage, set-up, and clean up for each of these parties.
Assist as needed with special mailings at the Opera Office. Definite dates for mailings are: Year-end Appeal in late November, Mid-year appeal in April, Carnival invitation in early May, possible postcards for each of the Opera on the Go talks, possible quarterly newsletter.
