OT: how to volunteer for the raptors? 

Post#1 » by Jack_Hardstrong » Wed Jan 23, 2013 1:29 am

Does anyone know how I can volunteer for the raptors?

I feel this organization needs help all around and I can offer some.


Maybe y'all should join me

I say volunteer instead of employment because I think work under raptors/MLSE maybe difficult to seek. At least volunteering is a bit easier to be apart of.

And I feel a job in the arena as a food guy, security, etc isn't under the raptors, more so the arena owners.

I was thinking of something else... Maybe something involving or around the games


Definitely not janitorial work :(

Start selling Bargnani jerseys outside the ACC. Wait for BC to come out, once he sees you, then you get a job. Oh and you also get an overpaid salary.

:lol: that made me laugh.

Isn't OP the same one who made a thread about "if you were a homosexual, which player would you date?" or something like that?

Actually I should not laugh at the OP, I am a unemployed youth in my 20's. I hope some day I will learn the tricks of office politics or be super smart -- so they cannot fire me regardless of my behavior in the office.

I wish I had a job :cry:

Not getting so wasted on Saturday nights that you're puking during Sunday's tipoff might be a start... :wink:

I'd be down.

Long gone are the dreams of playing for the raptors.

Maybe I could get into video coordinator like erick spoelstra and eventually work my way up to assistant coach and then head coach of the raptors.

This is the second thread today in which the OP doesn't know the difference between "apart" and "a part".

I did this a few years ago for a while because it was a lot of fun and it was for a good cause.

I used to be one of the volunteers selling the 50-50 raffle tickets. 50% of the profits went to the MLSE Team Up Foundation. We would sell tickets for 3 quarters and for the 4th quarter we got to go near the platinum area lounges and watch the 4th quarter (to be clear we arent in the lounges. There was a lot of open spaces for people to watch the games if they wanted some fresh air or whatever). They also gave us pizza and drinks. They sell tickets at Toronto FC, Leafs and Raptors games. Its nice because they dont pressure you like other sales jobs.

A lot of you are probably too old to volunteer for something like that and I eventually stopped because of that but I still know the guy who organizes it and if anyone wants his email you can PM me.

I'd volunteer to be the TV director for a week, just to show them how incredibly easy it is to use the cameras properly and to show the fans just how much of a difference it makes.
