Special Event Volunteer Information 

Each year, hundreds of people support the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House when they attend one of our special events. Volunteers play a pivotal role in making sure each event runs smoothly and our guests have an enjoyable experience. If it weren't for the volunteer help we receive, these events would not be possible. We welcome individual volunteers as well as groups. If you, your family, classmates or team are interested in making a difference, please consider helping at one of these special events:

  • SHINE Gala
  • Walk For Kids

Volunteers are needed in the area of setup, registration, greeters, auction assistants, check-out, break down and more.

Contact our Development Manager, Hilary Manners ([email protected]), to learn more about these volunteer opportunities.

 

 The Ronald McDonald House, Pasadena uses VolunteerHub to manage our volunteer needs. This will require that you establish a username and password to register as a volunteer.
