The Special Spectators Classifieds - Help Wanted

Over the last couple weeks, the Special Spectators blog has highlighted the different aspects of the typical game day event, its impact on the seriously-ill children and families who attend and what we've accomplished over the last seven seasons. Since 2002, we've hosted almost 5,500 patients, parents and siblings at about 165 games. We've done this at a total cost to the organization of only $85,000. Given our limited resources and no paid staff, we're proud of what we've accomplished, but now it's time to focus on the future and the 2009 college football season.

In order to continue our dramatic growth, we are actively recruiting new volunteers to serve in several capacities including:
  • Public/Media Relations
  • Social Media
  • Web Design
  • Multimedia
  • Mobile Technology
  • Legal
  • Fundraising
  • Volunteer Coordination
  • Game Day Event Planning
  • Game Day Event Volunteers
  • Sponsorships
  • Business Development
If you have experience in any of these areas listed and are excited by the opportunity to provide a magical day for seriously-ill children and their families, please consider becoming a Special Spectators volunteer. Maybe you've just graduated from college and the current economic climate has made it difficult to find a job or your a talented professional who has recently been laid-off and are looking to volunteer your time, we want you to join us

This is a great opportunity for exposure as millions of fans each year have been introduced to Special Spectators. We've been featured on ESPN,, FSN, Delta Airlines in-flight entertainment and local coverage in markets such as Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, Dallas, Orlando, Cleveland, Tucson and many more.

We're passionate about Special Spectators, we have a great time and you'll be amazed how spending a day at football game can impact these children and their families. To learn more, contact Blake Rockwell at
