BSG Volunteer Committees

Additional opportunities to volunteer and help BSG to run smoothly are listed below.  If you do not volunteer for a committee at the time of registration or Open House, then you will be assigned to one.  Please note that very few of the committees require more than a few hours of your time for the entire dance year.   There is also the option of opting out of volunteering and donating $25 to our program. 

Fundraising

Members of this committee assist in coordinating and organizing program fundraisers.  Examples of past fundraisers: Yankee Candle, Joe Corbi’s Pizza, Restaurant Nights, Bingo Night and Date Night, Reisterstown Festival concession stand, and recital Candygrams & flower sales.  We are always looking for new and exciting fundraisers, and parents to run them!
