Hands down, it is some of the most fun you will have all year. We have many repeat volunteers and a few that have been been here for the past 30 years!
VOLUNTEERING FOR THE AUCTION IS PHYSICALLY DEMANDING WORK. Penland is on a mountain and you will always be WALKING ON HILLS AND STAIRS. All jobs require you to be ON YOUR FEET most of the day and many of the JOBS REQUIRE LIFTING. Please decide if you are physically able to volunteer.
Some volunteers come for the entire time period (Wed - Sun) others come for just a couple days. All campus housing is filled with volunteers or patrons during the auction. You must volunteer for 2.5 days to receive campus housing. Local volunteers come and go from campus each day and have no time requirements for volunteering. Volunteer housing is available Wednesday - Sunday, Aug 9 - 13.
