YNPN San Diego's Saturday with Vavi

By Jessica Rodgers...

On Saturday, October 16, eight volunteers from YNPN San Diego lined up at Vavi’s soccer, volleyball and flag football event at Mariner’s Point. All of our volunteers wore green to show off YNPN San Diego colors. Next time, we’ll be sure to have some signage and brochures to let everyone know a little more about us! Every one of the volunteers bought raffle tickets, and almost everyone walked away with a prize—Vavi had so many prizes to raffle!

Anne Bolzoni, a fundraising consultant for Vavi and also Executive Director of SANDAN (San Diego Association of Nonprofit), organized the day. Rahul and I arrived to unwrap the mini-fridge (that he later won in the raffle) and to lie out the rest of the prizes. Crysta and Rahul helped out all morning, and Quinn, Myrna, Ana and Liz carried the efforts from late morning until the end. Thanks to Vavi for sharing their pizza with our volunteers free-of-charge.

Two of the guys in charge of Vavi are also on the Board of San Diego Parks and Recreation, and they have fundraisers at each event to help increase funds. They partner with an organization at each event to get the manpower to sell raffle tickets.

Did you know that Vavi has 34,000+ participants in San Diego? Spread the word about YNPN San Diego—we’re well on our way ☺

I even saw Liz, one of our volunteers from the Vavi event, at our Meet and Greet the following Thursday. Glad to see new members joining the ranks!
