Posted on July 6, 2014

Have fun while raising money to fight muscle disease! The Muscular Dystrophy Association is hosting their 34th annual Padres Tailgate & Fire Fighter Chili Cook-off at Embarcadero Marina Park South @ Convention Way. Volunteers are needed for the morning shift (10am-2:45pm) and the afternoon shift (1:45pm-6pm).

If you’d like to join SDYP to volunteer as a group, please email Robin at or text her cell at 619-920-5776 by July 2nd. Please let her know which shift you prefer and if you want a free Padres ticket for the game later that day. Most of us will be at the later shift and going to the Padres game after. We will volunteer for part of the day and then we’ll have access to enjoy the festivities for the rest of the day! Come help a worthy cause, then have some fun!

ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Duties of volunteers will include, among others as needed, set up, tear down, serving, ballots, auction duties, registration, ticket sales and distribution, handing out wrist bands, checking ID’s etc.

All morning volunteers will are welcome to stay and enjoy the all-you-can-eat food and non-alcoholic beverages. Volunteers who are 21 or older will also be able to enjoy the beer garden!

Evening volunteers will get a special treat as well! For the first time ever they will have Padres tickets for those who would like to attend to game after their shift is over! (Tickets must be requested. Limit one per volunteer).

The event is held at the Embarcadero Marina Park South, in downtown San Diego. It is best to park at the convention center for easiest event access. Depending on what shift, you will either arrive at 10am, or 1:45pm and check in at the volunteer booth for assignment. There will be signs throughout the area that will lead you to the event, and the volunteer booth will be right at the entrance.
