Volunteers Needed for the 2013 Ghent Bar Tour

The most charitable pub crawl in the nation, the Ghent Winter Bar Tour will try to outdo itself once again on Saturday, February 23rd as it hits the streets of midtown Norfolk for the biggest night out this winter! As always, all proceeds from this event will benefit a fantastic organization making a big difference in our local community – Edmarc Hospice for Children!  In the past 3 years this events has raised over $60,000 and we need the help of volunteers to make this years’ the best ever. Our largest annual pub crawl will journey once again down Colley Avenue, 21st Street, and the surrounding locale in the historic midtown Norfolk neighborhood of Ghent from 4:00 PM until 9:00 PM.


We need many volunteers to help before and/or during the 2013 Ghent Winter Bar Tour on February 23, 2013. If you are able to volunteer your time to help our cause (and want to have some fun while doing it), then please click on the link below, fill out and submit the form below so we know how to contact you. For your time and efforts as a volunteer, you will receive free registration to the event, a special volunteer shirt, and an invitation for yourself and a guest to the volunteer appreciation party held a week or two after the event.
