ASRAB – Volunteers Needed for Calgary

Volunteers Needed for ASRAB Casino Fundraiser

Alberta Sports and Recreation Association for the Blind (ASRAB) is holding an upcoming casino fundraiser! We are looking for a few persons to fill volunteer positions that are required over the two days. Hosting a Casino is a primary fundraising event for ASRAB.

These funds go a long way towards enabling ASRAB to meet our mandate of supporting sport and recreation opportunities for people who are visually impaired including our gymnastics, soccer, physical literacy, cross-country skiing, dragon boat, goalball programs and many more! This is a great event to meet and work alongside other ASRAB volunteers and members.

The positions that are available are:

Cashier: Redeems players’ chips for cash. Little data entry required.

Chiprunner: Delivers chips from the Banker to the game tables as required. Will count chips with the gaming floor staff as required. A fair amount of data entry is required.

Countroom Staff: Will sort and use money counting machines to count money. Some data entry required.

General Manager: Responsible for overall continuity of casino, including filling any position as necessary to facilitate breaks.

Banker: Controls all cash and chip inventories. Data entry required.

Note that all positions involve doing some data entry by the volunteers on PDAs (small handheld computers) – but it is very easy!

Where: Cowboys Casino (421 – 12 Avenue SE) in Calgary

When: Thursday October 12 and Friday October 13, 2023

The shifts that are available for both days are:

Day shift for cashier and chiprunner – 11:15am to 7:30pm.

Night shift for cashier and chiprunner – 7:15pm to 3:15am.

Count Room shift – 11:15pm – 3:30am.

Thanks very much for your consideration! We look forward to working with you on this key ASRAB fundraiser. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
