If you were at the last meeting, you already know about the Balloon Festival. If not, let me recap.

The Suffolk County Celiac group will have their own booth at the Festival. It's being held at Calabro Airport on LI, on August 10, 11th and 12th. We will be distributing material on Celiac Disease and also have some gluten-free foods for samples.

In addition, we have an opportunity to make some money at this event by volunteering at one of the concession stands. Here's a brief explanation on how it works:

To participate in the Balloon Festival, all we need are bodies to prepare and serve. They will provide tents, equipment, food supplies and management. They will resupply the booth during the day. Products are simple stadium style that require minimum preparation so no experience is necessary.

Locations require 10 or 12 people per day DURING PEAK TIMES. Our organization will receive 10% of the GROSS SALES from each location we staff which should average $2,000. Parking, admission and meals are free plus you will be able to enjoy the whole event.

The hours of operation are:

Friday, August 10 - 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Saturday, August 11 - 10:00 am to 11:00 pm

Sunday, August 12 - 10:00 am to 8:00 pm

The Peak Times are: (this is when we need 10 to 12 people at the concession stand)

Friday, August 10 - 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Saturday, August 11 - 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm

Sunday, August 12 - 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm

This will be a great opportunity for us to make some money and have some fun.

Please let me know if you can and will participate and the days/times that you are available.
