IMAX Screening Volunteers Needed

Hey folks! I need some help preparing for this Sunday's screening at IMAX. If you're interested / available, please let me know immediately. Here's what I need:

REFRESHMENTS (1 or 2 people needed)
I need a friend to purchase cans of soda, bottles of water, and finger foods at the best price in bulk. Then bring the goods to the IMAX theatre on Sunday at 2:00 PM. Help set the stuff up before the event, and make sure I bring home what's not used. (I'll reimburse you; save me the receipt.)

CHECK IN TABLE (4 people needed)
About four people are needed for checking in guests. You sit at the table, smile and greet folks, ask for a photo ID, and then look up their name on a spreadsheet. It's pretty simple, but incredibly important. I need smart, kind folks to fill these positions.

EVENT VOLUNTEERS (6 people needed)
I could use a few dudes to help guide guests. You'll stand in a designated area to welcome people, guide them to the right place, answer questions, and put them at ease. This may sound unnecessary, but I feel like it's important. We have a diverse crowd attending the screening. Some of them are from out of town, and others aren't familiar with downtown Raleigh. These incredibly important people will help put guests at ease, so they come to the theatre ready to relax and enjoy the film.

CLEAN UP CREW (2 people needed)
When the event is over, I might be totally exhausted. I need a few folks willing to help leave the place better than when we came in. I don't know what, exactly, this will entail at the moment but it'll be simple things like making sure we don't leave things behind or helping me carry things to my car. Simple enough, eh?

If you, or someone you know, is kind enough to volunteer for these things please let me know immediately. I could use help from trustworthy, kind folks.
