2. Beerfest

Beerfest is taking place at the BMO Centre on May 5 and 6. The event proceeds go to support Kids Up Front, and for any volunteer that signs up and says they are a KUF volunteer, we receive an honorarium.
A volunteer shift is four hours long, and you also get free admission into the festival to hang out after and some free sample tickets, so if you wanted to take a Saturday afternoon shift (say 12 – 4) you can meet up with your friends after!

You can complete the form to volunteer here:
