We are in need of several volunteers for our upcoming casino. Key positions MUST be filled by current AWCS members. Non-key positions can be filled by anyone wishing to donate their time.
It’s a lot of work but worth it and it’s fun. In 2015 our casino netted the organization just over $70,000. These funds are imperative to the continued operations and programming of AWCS. Your time is worth A LOT and we appreciate every little bit.
