Volunteer groups working at the Harrah’s Cherokee Center Asheville will earn percentages of sales on a commission basis while volunteering with the facility. Groups will earn 10% of Net Food & Non-Alcoholic Beverage sales and 5% of Net Alcoholic Beverage sales.
Potential earnings are based on the group’s availability for events. The more events a group signs up for, the higher the earning potential. Groups can expect to be requested to work 8-10 larger arena shows and 10-15 Thomas Wolfe Auditorium shows, with average annual earnings of $10,000. Note, the quantity of available events and total earnings cannot be guaranteed as the program is reliant on the total number of booked events and total need for volunteer staff to work said events.
The above earnings averages does include cash donations. Groups working in concession stand or beer portable locations may place donation jars on the counter tops. This jars must be plastic, must have a nicely printed group logo and must clearly state that all donated funds are to be given directly to the group.
The Harrah’s Cherokee Center sets a minimum commission on each location guaranteeing a group at least $150 for each portable location and/or $250 for each main concession stand per event.
