|The problem with all these volunteer jobs is no one ever wants to pay you at the end of the job.|

|Heh, at least it's not like a medical internship. I hear those pay in the negative...|

|Well, look at it this way. If you were going to be alone on New Year's Eve, your payment is companionship and lots to do!

|Volunteers get free admission! (And most of the folks prepping this event are "working" for free.)
So whomever can spend a bit of time helping out basically gets $10 (price of an adult admission) ... plus, it's a pretty cool-looking admission button this year (a great souvenier!) ... designed by local artist Lance Kagey.
First Night is Tacoma and Pierce County's New Year's Eve festival; a family-friendly, alcohol-free, and most of all fabulously FUN celebration.
