CONCESSIONS          

 We need YOU! YES -YOU! 

A couple of years ago, the Booster Club partnered with ASB to manage the concession stand and provide concessions at some home varsity games and meets.  The objective is to raise funds for the Booster Club and ASB, provide fundraising opportunities for extra-curricular clubs and teams, and foster school spirit by selling concessions to spectators at events.  In order to continue to keep having concessions, we need parent volunteers to take on the role of chair of the stand.  It's a big job so we've split the position into 3 positions to ensure the workload isn't overwhelming.  Please reach out if you would like more info.  Thank you for your interest!

Concessions Chairs - NEEDED!
In order to keep providing Concessions at our home varsity games, we need 1-3 Chairs: Inventory Chair,  Volunteer Chair & Maintenace Chair

 

UPDATED STRUCTURE:

Based on feedback from our core volunteers, we are implementing a new structure for the 2022/23 aschool year! 

  • Volunteers are adult only
  • Volunteers will each 'earn' $20 per hour towards the IHS program they are supporting
  • Dollars earned will be paid out each respective program's designated account managed by Boosters
  • Programs will receive payouts on a quarterly basis
  • Programs can staff an entire event or part of one, signups done a first come/first served basis

INFORMATION FOR VOLUNTEERS

Before your event, please review the Volunteer Guidelines so you understand the Booster Club’s expectations.

Each volunteer should have a primary responsibility.  For most events, 3 volunteers will be sufficient - a Cashier, a volunteer in charge of food prep, and another in charge of inventory.  Each will be responsible for their own tasks for set-up, sales, and closing.  For Fall football games, we will require a minimum of 5 volunteers and a maximum of 10.

If you'd like a high-level overview of what tasks need to be completed to set up and close the Concession Stand, it may be helpful to review the Opening Checklist and Closing Checklist.  If you are working a weekend event, please review this Weekend Opening Checklist.  We also have an additional checklist for Indoor Events.  Because we assume that every volunteer group is a first time crew in the Concession Stand, we have provided instructions that go into much more detail for CashierFood Prep, and Inventory and can be found in the Concession Stand for your reference, as are specific instructions for Pizza, operating the Square Terminal, and making Coffee, Hot Dogs, Popcorn, and Hot Beverages.  Finally, here are some tips we've come up with.  All of these documents are printed and located in the Concession Stand.  

We ask that you please use a Volunteer Log and Event Summary to record Event-Specific Information - volunteer sign-in, items to note, low inventory, discarded inventory, etc.  Use a Cash Box/Change Reconciliation Form for each Cashier.  If you have technical issues and are unable to use the Square terminals, please record sales using a Cash Sales/Inventory Tracking Form.  These forms will all be located in the Concession Stand for your Event.

BOOSTER CONCESSIONS COMMITTEE

The Booster Club welcomes parent volunteers!  Join the fun and active Management Concessions committee today.  Each sport and club also need a parent volunteer to rally their club, sport, or activity to work the booth and make $$$ for their activity.  

Concessions "On Call" Volunteers NEEDED: Volunteers who are willing to be on an “on-call” list to work in the concession stand if other groups haven’t signed up.  Right now we are planning to schedule 3 people in the stand for most events (other than football and quad basketball games).  That might change once we get going, but for now, you can grab a couple of friends and work for a few hours at an athletic event to benefit Boosters (or your child’s clubs/teams).  

Concessions Booster Club Representatives (5) NEEDED:   This volunteer will meets a volunteer group when they arrive at an event - unlock the doors, hand off paperwork and instructions, and answer questions.   

 


 

CONCESSIONS DOLLARS AT WORK!

We want to share with you the tremendous success of our inaugural season of Booster Concessions.  With your help, we sold concessions at all varsity events in the gym and stadium this fall, demonstrating our collective commitment to, and support of, all student-athletes.  Revenue this fall far surpassed our goals, and we could not be more pleased with the engagement and support of our IHS community. We are proud to have provided a fundraising and community service opportunity for class councils, teams, and clubs. 

We are excited to report that the volunteer pool for 2019-2020 was $10,542, to be split among the 24 groups that volunteered. AND that was without Spring Sports!   $2000 also went back directly to ASB as the Booster Club partner.  
 
As a reminder, we allocate funds pro-rata based on volunteer hours, not cash receipts during a volunteer shift. So, a 12 person shift covering 5 hours (60 volunteer hours) will receive 5 times as many funds as a 3 person shift of 4 hours (12 volunteer hours). We do cap the number of volunteers for this calculation.
 
We’ve transferred the following amounts to the corresponding ASB accounts:
$321.85 - Band
$234.84 - Baseball
$801.83 - Basketball (Boys)
$594.84 - Basketball (Girls)
$660.22 - Cheer
$562.39 - Class of 2020
$454.24 - Class of 2021
$915.69 - Class of 2022
$793.12 - Class of 2023
$194.67 - Dance
$641.68 - DECA
$367.72 - FCCLA
$919.28 - Football
  $93.73 - Forensics
$200.84 - Key Club
$194.67 - Golf (Boys)
$908.45 - Robotics
$504.67 - Soccer (Boys)
$144.20 - Soccer (Girls)
$173.04 - Softball
$72.10  -  Swim (Boys)
$332.15 - Tennis (Boys)
$281.18 - Volleyball
$185.39 - Wrestling
 
We are thrilled by the response we’ve received from athletes who appreciate us supporting their events, spectators who attend and appreciate the convenience of our food and beverage options, and volunteers who are having fun selling concessions. 

Collectively, we are enhancing school spirit, building community, and raising funds to benefit our students!  Thank you for your continued support and participation!
