Volunteers should arrive by 9:30am to help set up and stay till 2:30pm (late arrivals and early departures can be accommodated if communicated prior) . Meet with Openhouse Office Manager, Matthew Cimino, in the hallway to the Veranda Ballroom at 9:30am to check-in. A volunteer lounge with coffee, catered lunch and refreshments will be provided. Afterwards we can go out in SoMa to a beverage benefit of our choice.

Feel the Bliss by giving back to the community and lend a helping hand to Maitri Compassionate Care, California's only AIDS-specific residential care facility. Help show appreciation to Maitri's donors at their annual gala “BLISS 2014: Kaleidoscope of Compassion.” Greet guests as they arrive to the event, assist with registration or work the silent auction or coat check. The workload is relatively light but the night is chock full of surprises.
Once our work is done, we invite you stick around to enjoy the show. Entertainers include local jazz chanteuse Paula West, the ever-irreverent Sister Roma and headliner & disco diva Freda Payne (of “Band of Gold”).

We cannot wait to have you volunteer for this very special night!
