    During these events, AMSA members volunteer to help run a concession stand at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL (near the Sawgrass Mall) during the hockey season. Members can be assigned to either work the registers, obtain food/drinks, or prepare food for the BB&T guests.

    These events sound like a lot of work, but it is a lot of fun too. There are often periods of down-time where volunteers can prep for the next wave of customers. Food is provided if there is extra after the shift ends! I promise you that it will be an enjoyable experience, so tell your friends to join as well! Often times, carpooling occurs for these events an hour or so prior to the event, so do not worry about the cost of driving!!

    Earn money towards your trip! Or even for yourself!
