Volunteering

Are you interested in helping out in your community?

Our board has openings for directors-at-large! If you enjoy getting involved in your community, meeting new people, and having your voice heard, please contact president@queenmarypark.ca.

We have events throughout the year requiring volunteers, including Big Bin, Casinos, Thursday Nights on the Edge, Community League BBQ, Winterfest and more! Stay tuned on our social media and email blasts for opportunities.

If you have a skill you can contribute to our community, please let us know!

Upcoming events that need volunteers:

Queen Mary Park Casino

When:  December 13, 14, 2021
Where: Starlight Casino West Edmonton Mall

The community gets an opportunity to work a casino about every 18 months.
22 volunteers for 2 days can raise between $60,000 – $80,000.

The casino is the only fundraising we do.  The proceeds from the casino provide funding for all of our programs and events and funding for hall and park maintenance and improvements.

This is a fun opportunity that requires no experience. All of the volunteers and all activities are supervised by professional casino advisors to make sure everything is fun and easy.

Casino Volunteer Positions

There are a variety of positions we need to fill to run the casino – all of these positions are closely supervised by the professional advisors.

General Manager
Supervises all aspects of the casino, ensures all volunteers are present, performs opening and closing cash and chip counts, and other administrative functions during the casino.

Supervises the cash cage. This includes documenting all cash cage transactions, ensuring the security of the chips and cash in the cash cage, and holding the cashiers accountable for the chips and cash they manage while on duty.

Chip Runner
Picks up chips form chip cage and brings them to the gaming tables escorted by casino security.  This is not a very busy position, most of your time will be spent in the volunteer lounge.

COVID and the Casino
Currently casinos are open with COVID measures in place.  We hope that things get better by December.  Unless the casino is closed the event will proceed, and volunteers will follow the appropriate measures of the day.

Volunteer Benefits:
All volunteers can have a free meal at any of the casino restaurants on the day of their shift and the volunteer lounge will be stocked with a variety of drinks and snacks.  Normally all volunteers are invited to our annual volunteer appreciation banquet, however with COVID in consideration , QMP is thinking of another way to recognize our volunteers – so sign up and see what the surprise is!
