Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a ticket to be a volunteer?
You do not have to have a ticket for the time that you are volunteering. However, if you want to attend the Island Fantasy Ball at any other time, you must buy a ticket for that time. Note that due to very limited space, volunteers are not given seat tickets and are not guaranteed to see any events. Most volunteers do not work inside the ballroom.
Is there a dress code for volunteers?
Yes. A suit and tie or semi formal for the men and semi-formal wear for ladies is sufficient.
Can I drop in at the Island Fantasy Ball and help out without registering as a volunteer?
No. We require all volunteers to register and provide certain information about their expertise and experience before the event. While we are grateful for all assistance, please let us know in advance if you can help.
What do I do if I register as a volunteer but find I cannot make it?
Please endeavor to do your utmost to fulfill any volunteer commitments you make as our event depends on our volunteers. In the case that you cannot do so inform the Volunteer Coordinator as soon as possible by email to Volunteers@IslandFantasyBall.com
