About

SIGN-UP TO BE APART OF BIG HEARTS! PLEASE read all the details below before signing up.

What is Big Hearts?: Big Hearts is one of ESP's largest fundraising events solely focused on celebrating our participants and subsidizing their costs to attend programs! It is broken down in three events -- The talent show, the broadcast, and the Gala!  

Volunteer Responsibilities: Volunteers are able to assist in all three aspects. Volunteer opportunities are detailed and labeled with specific responsibilities, instructions, and which event it supports.

Dates and Times: Given that Big Hearts spans across three days, volunteer dates and times will vary given there are many shifts to assist in prep work as well as day of hands-on needs. Be sure to check each shift carefully. 

This is such a special event for the participants, their families, and our community! Thank you for your interest in being a vital part of making Big Hearts happen!
