Early Arts Festival results are in: $2000+ in tips!


It’s been about two weeks since the Arts Festival has ended at and it’s been made pretty clear that Carlisle Soccer Club volunteers are ROCK STARS! Thanks to the very hard work of Melissa Karnatz (that’s her, right, counting tips during a lull in the crowd) and David Gutierrez (that’s him, below, chilling over a cooler full of adult beverages as the chief beer-grabber during most of the event’s three days) and and amazing group of volunteers, we achieved fantastic results.

Please forgive us if we didn’t catch everybody’s name, but suffice it to say that it was a fantastic team effort!

"We ran the Arts Festival this year," wrote Mellisa in a Club-wide email after the event."We walked away with more than $2100 in tips alone!"

It will be a couple months before we learn how much of the proceeds we earned from sales.We’re looking for some great numbers because, Friday night we were second in sales and Saturday we were first! 

"I’m telling you….people love us!" wrote Melissa. "Our energy was what brought us our customers!  It is because of our volunteers that we were able to pull off what we did!

"I cannot say THANK YOU enough! I know that it took time away from schedules and family to be able to come help us out." she said. "I hope that each and every single one of you know just how much our volunteers are appreciated!"
