NOLA Navy Weekend Volunteer Opportunities

Friday-Sunday, April 20th-22nd, 2012

See the Blue Angels Airshow over Lake Pontchartrain up close AND help raise funds to support Alumni Association programs benefitting the University of New Orleans by volunteering at the UNO Alumni & Friends' concession stand in the heart of the city’s Airshow spectator area!

New Orleans will serve as the inaugural city for a three-year national celebration commemorating the War of 1812 and the Star-Spangled Banner.  The celebration will feature an Airshow with the Navy’s famed Blue Angels on Saturday and Sunday, April 21st and 22nd. The Blue Angels will fly over Lake Pontchartrain behind the eastern portion of the UNO Main Campus with the official designated viewing area located behind UNO East Campus and SUNO. 

The UNO International Alumni Association will be one of only a few designated vendors serving food and beverages to an anticipated 65,000 spectators.  We are looking for volunteers to cover a variety of shifts throughout the weekend to help load, set up and serve concessions.
