Calling all Pirates! The East Carolina Alumni Association invites you to volunteer with fellow ECU alumni and friends at ECU Night at UNC-TV on Saturday, March 21.
As a volunteer, you will answer phones and take donor pledges that will help North Carolina’s public television station continue to provide quality, educational programming for North Carolinians. ECU Night is our night of UNC-TV’s annual “Festival” Telethon to show the state how Pirates give back!
All volunteers will receive a short orientation prior to answering phones and accepting pledges. Dress comfortable and casual in your Pirate purple and gold! Do let us know you’re coming by registering for the event.
Volunteers work off-camera while UNC-TV staff and guest stars host the evening’s segments. Occasionally, the camera will show a general shot of the phone room, but will not focus on any one person. Help us fill the room with Pirates! Those who do not wish to be on TV at all can be seated at a phone station out of the camera frame.
Please plan to arrive at the studio at 6:00 p.m. and stay until 11:30 p.m. Dinner will be provided for this event.
Limited transportation will be provided for volunteers traveling from the Greenville/Pitt County area. Reservations for the shuttle are required in addition to registering for the event.
For those with transportation reservations made, please meet at the Belk Building parking lot (off of Charles Blvd., across from Clark-LeClair Stadium) by 4:00 p.m. We should return to Greenville after midnight.
Please contact Shawn Moore at 252-328-5775 for transportation reservations and any further questions.
If you’re not able to come and volunteer, be sure to call in and make a donation to UNC-TV. A fellow Pirate will be the one to take your pledge!
