KEXP Volunteer Party @ KEXP parking lot, June 22

KEXP volunteers know who’s the most!

KEXP has over 1000 volunteers at any given time. Combined, they donate over 12,000 volunteer hours per year. Volunteers do everything from admin work to dj assisting to answering phones at membership drives and we wouldn’t exist without their help. Once a year we throw a party in their honor, and KEXP staff volunteer to serve them for a change. We had a blast! We had 3 kegs, 200 volunteers, 300 burgers, 150 cupcakes, 4 porta potties, 200 goodie bags stuffed with donations from local businesses (thanks guys!), 1 Tom Mara (our esteemed Executive Director, flipping burgers), Guitar Hero projected onto the wall with giant speakers, and not a single keg stand. [ed. although there was a punchbowl of beer involved!] What more could a Volunteer Coordinator ask? It was great fun and the least we could do to thank our volunteers for their hours of tireless work. It’s a pleasure working with all of you. And rumor has it, that some volunteers and staff got kicked out of a nearby bar afterwards for disturbing a family trying to have a peaceful meal at 11:30pm. Way to go guys! You did us proud!
