The Detroit Tigers Need You!

Please see the letter below which shows volunteer opportunities for the World Series. How exciting!!!

Greetings Volunteers,

As we prepare for the World Series, we need volunteer support on Saturday, 10/27, Sunday, 10/28 and Monday, 10/29. Available volunteers are required to assist on all 3 days. Please see complete details below and let me know your availability.

Responses are needed by 12:00 noon on Thursday, October 25th.

Dates TimesSaturday, 10/27, Sunday, 10/28
and Monday, 10/29

5:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Volunteers are required to assist on all 3 days

There are 100 volunteer positions available.

Volunteers are needed to help distribute the following items to Detroit Tiger fans throughout the downtown Detroit area:

30,000 Detroit Tiger Buttons

30,000 Restaurant & Nightlife Guides

20,000 Orange and Blue Beads with Detroit Sports Commission Medallion

10,000 DET Sports Bumper Stickers
Your most important role is to serve as a friendly face and welcome people to downtown Detroit.
Answer questions when you can and feel free to point out local eateries, bars and nightspots. Use your own experiences as a guide and point out your favorite to our visitors. You can also use our Restaurant & Nightlife Guide as a reference.

Volunteers will check-in at the DMCVB office building (211 W. Fort Street, Detroit, 48226) at 5:00 p.m. on each day. Items will be picked up from the 1st floor of the building. Once you’ve received your items to distribute, you’ll be assigned to a particular location at that time. All locations are in the immediate downtown Detroit area (accessible via People Mover). Most locations are outdoors.

Volunteers will receive a Detroit Tigers sweatshirt and should wear khaki pants and comfortable shoes. Please dress in layers due to possible inclement weather.

Volunteers are on their own for parking. We suggest parking away from Comerica Park and taking the People Mover to our building for check-in. Our building is located on the corner of Fort & Washington Blvd. (diagonal from Cobo Center). We are centrally located between the Cobo Center People Mover Stop and the Fort/Cass People Mover Stop.

Policies and Procedures
Please note, as indicated above, volunteers are required to commit to all 3 days (Oct. 27-29, 2012). Due to the cost of the sweatshirts, we are required to obtain a debit/credit card number from each volunteer, in case there are no-shows.

If you are interested in volunteering all 3 days (Oct. 27-29) from 5:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
please email the following information to my attention at

(You may want to upsize since you’ll be dressed in layers. The sweatshirt should be worn as your outer garment).
