Welcome to Concessions!

Concessions is one of our major fundraising efforts each year for the band and we need your help to pull it off.  Each parent is required to volunteer to support concessions.  To sign up, log into Charms, clikc on "Volunteer", and select the event.

Contact the Concessions Chair at concessions@masonbandboosters.com.

Here are a few important things you need to know:

  • Helping in concessions is for Adult volunteers only.  For safety reasons, NO children are allowed in the concession stands. 

  • When you sign up to volunteer, there will be a Stand Coordinator who knows all the procedures and ways the stand works.  You will be a part of his/her team.

  • Please be on time as we count on your help to get things set up before we are able to open concessions.   

  • At the ticket gate, tell them that you are working concessions. They have a list of volunteers and you will get into the game free.

  • Go directly to the Atrium stand (the one closest to the high school) to check in and find out where you are assigned to work.  If you are sent to one of the other stands, you will need to sign in there.

  • Individual assignments will be posted in each stand the night of the game. The job assignments are posted below so you know what is involved. 

  • Wear comfortable clothes (spirit wear if you have it) and shoes. It will be warm in the concession stands.

  • Bring your own drink and food if you do not want to buy concessions -- there is a place in the back cooler to keep things you bring with you. There is no free food for volunteers, coaches, directors, or students -- the Coordinator will be responsible for the referees.  

  • When you volunteer for Friday night Varsity games, you may NOT leave to go to the stands during half-time to watch the band perform. This is very important as halftime is the busiest time, and we count on you to be there.  

  • If you have reasonable conflicts that will keep you from following through on your commitment, email concessions@masonbandboosters.com as soon as possible.  If you find a replacement, he/she still needs to be notified so the volunteer name can be changed at the ticket gate for entry.

  • Games held on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays are more low-key, and we only open the Atrium. We run all three stands (Atrium, Home, and Visitor) for the Varsity games to accommodate the large, hungry crowds. 

  • Last, but certainly not least, please remember that everything done for concessions is done by a team of volunteers -- I can guarantee you that not all things will be done perfectly.  A great deal of work is done tirelessly behind the scenes with much forethought given to how to make it run as smoothly as possible -- but sometimes chaos is simply part of the process. Please come prepared to be flexible and do your part to be supportive and helpful.
