It gives me great joy to be able to celebrate another year of life! This year,I invite you to help me celebrate, and support an organization to which I've committed many years. Team D.C. Basketball or popularly known as the D.C. Sentinels.

The Party was a great success! I was able to raise $635 dollars for the DC Sentinels!

Thank you to all that supported me. Thanks for your gracious donations.

Attached is the parking pass for Saturday.  Please make sure that anybody who is planning to drive to RFK knows to bring this pass with them and they should park in Lot 7.   If they don't have this pass, they will charge them to park and it's not cheap!

    • All workers should arrive at Gate C at RFK Stadium at 1:30 pm.   They will need to check in and get a wristband indicating they are a worker. 
    • I will take a representative from each booth down to the Cash Room to pick up the bags of cash and credit card machines.   Please make sure they are there on time! 
    • All workers should wear sneakers or closed toe shoes no flip flops or sandals. 
    • Shorts are fine, but black pants are preferred.   Remember, workers will get a little dirty so don't wear your Sunday best! Teams can wear your jerseys or red shirts will be provided for people to wear.

Aaron Fischbach and I will be roaming from stand to stand to assist those teams in need and to help answer questions.   My cell is 603-359-0869.   Call or text me if you need me.  

Report Time - 1:30pm

Gates open - 3:30pm

Game time - 5:00pm

Last Call - midway through the second half (I'm not sure at what time that is for Rugby)

Close stands about 10 minutes after last call, then start counting inventory, cleaning the stand and bringing the cash bags back to the lower level. 

Some helpful hints:

  • Once you get to your stand, immediately take inventory of all drinks, food, etc.  
  • Wipe down your stand to make sure it's clean.   For those that haven't worked here before, RFK is old and dirty and ready for demolition soon.   Just anticipate that when you arrive!
  • Load coolers with drinks to get them cold.
  • Get hot dogs thawed out and on the cookers.
  • Get popcorn into bags and put them into the popcorn machine. don't just pour the bags of popcorn into the machine takes too long to fill the bags on the fly.
  • Make sure you have a good supply of all items ready to serve by 4:00.   Your rush will be just before the game (4-5pm) and at halftime of the game.   Be ready for the rushes!  
  • Have 2 or 3 people serve as the cash register attendants and 4 or 5 as the runners to hand out items, make food, etc.   Ideally each register has one person taking money or cards, one person gathering the order, and then you have 3 or 4 people cooking the food pizzas, hot dogs, etc.
