Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers make the Benefit successful (and have lots of fun along the way!). Sign up to join the marketing, decor, or auction committee.

Donate an Auction Item

We need your help to secure items for the silent auction. Contributions to the silent auction support our fundraising efforts and offer exciting, difficult-to-access opportunities for bidders. Please consider any connections you have for items or experiences in categories like travel, art, theater, sports, food, and health and wellness.

Become a Corporate Sponsor

Each year, corporate sponsors and advertisers play an important role in raising critical funds for Calhoun. In addition to the several publicity benefits sponsors and advertisers receive, Calhoun families are historically loyal to businesses that support the Benefit. Learn more.
