Brief Description of Event: 
The C&O Canal Trust is hosting it's 8th Annual Park After Dark Fundraising Gala this year on Saturday, Sept. 15th. As in previous years, this event will include live music, dancing, a silent auction, and a catered dinner for 300 guests. Last year, we were able to raise $140,000 to help support the C&O Canal National Historical Park through this event, with a special focus on raising money for the Canal Classrooms Educational program. This year's event will be fundraising to help support various infrastructure improvements within the C&O Canal, including towpath resurfacing in much-needed areas, as well as flood mitigation and repairs. This event is a large undertaking, and would not be possible without the help of community volunteers. We are looking for volunteers to help us out for multiple shifts, including event set up on 9/14 and the morning of 9/15, various roles during the night of the gala, and event clean-up on 9/16. SSL hours are available for those that need them. We would greatly appreciate your help at any of these shifts.
