Fundraising Events


Volunteering at a fundraising event is fun and a great way to get out and meet people. 

Volunteer positions are generally a four hour commitment and positions vary depending on the event.  

Volunteer opportunities include

  • POLAR PLUNGE - February.  Plungers are freezin' for a reason ... and so are volunteers.   VOLUNTEERS accept release forms, tally funds, issue bracelets and give prizes earned to Plungers. 

  • RIP CITY 3 on 3 - July/August.  Rip City 3on3 is a street ball tournament where over 500 teams compete in 3 on 3 half court, 3-point shootout, dunk & skills competitions all benefiting Special Olympics Oregon. Forty 3-on-3 courts will be set up outside around the Rose Quarter Campus.  VOLUNTEERS keep score for the games (flip the score chart) - and will be assigned one volunteer per court.  VOLUNTEERS can also sign up to assist with logistics (games operations, lunch & water delivery). 

  • THE BITE OF OREGON - Sept 1 - 4, 2017.   The Bite will be dazzling taste buds at its new location at the Rose Quarter. It is a weekend of delicious food, Iron Chef Oregon competitions, the best craft beer, wine and spirits, and so much more!  VOLUNTEERS greet guests at the gates, serve food/take tickets in Appetizer Alley and sell SOOR wine glasses.
