Hosts Make OctoTea Happen!

Ever wonder how the Octopus Club can put on such great parties, and every penny of the proceeds from ticket sales, raffles, auction sales and corporate cash go to the Paul Kirby Fund?

 Two words:  Hosts and Sponsors.  Due to the generosity of our hosts and corporate sponsors who donate in kind, the Octopus Club continues, year after year, to make good on our promise to donate all other proceeds to the Kirby Fund.

 Simply put, without hosts – OctoTea doesn’t happen.  Hosts also help to sell tickets, and often volunteer in other capacities, as well.  

 

Being a Host Means That You Are Lending a Hand

 

Hosts are Ambassadors for OctoTea.  Being a Host means that YOU are now a part of OctoTea’s amazing success.  Let everyone know that YOU are putting on the hottest party of the year – ALL FOR A GREAT CAUSE!

 

Hosts Sell Tickets.  While Hosts are not required to sell tickets, we ask that you assist in promoting the event.

 

We encourage you to get involved in other ways as well.  There are lots of ways to get MORE involved and give back.  Ask, and we will get you there!
