Steel Bridge Songfest is FREE...if you volunteer!
It takes over 300 volunteers to put this phenomenal event together. They have our deepest gratitude and thanks! Our volunteers are the best any organization could hope to have!
We would love to meet you and help you find your perfect role. Right now, we are especially interested in people with experience in the following:
• Office management/organization, data collection, merchandise inventory, and general housekeeping skills
• Marketing and Communications - How to best promote Steel Bridge and raise community awareness for its mission, developing creative marketing ideas, graphic and web design, and public communication
• Housing Hoteliers, concierges, and others in the hospitality industry who are interested in arranging lodging for next year's musicians and volunteers
• Green Technologies Reducing our environmental footprint by improving our practices from the ground up: Waste disposal and management, power generation, off-grid solutions, alternative transportation, and other fresh ideas.
We had over 200 musicians and volunteer technicians come to Sturgeon Bay for Steel Bridge 2010. Many great local businesses stepped up to the plate and provided rooms below cost or as a donation - help us take some of the pressure off by volunteering your space. We gratefully consider offers of rooms, trailers, camp sites, and other accommodations. (due to the nature of the festival, we do ask that if you are donating a room - you must be located in Sturgeon Bay)

A recent letter from a volunteer...
Sent : Monday, April 9, 2007 3:28 PM
[Dear Citizens For Our Bridge],
We would like to volunteer to help with the cleanup on Sunday, if
you need help with this. My dad and I ran into you last year at the coffee
shop on sunday morning and wanted to offer to help out, but we had to get
home to take care of our dogs. You've done so much for the community with
these concerts that we'd like to give a little something back.
Again, thank you so much for all your hard work. The reason we came to the
first songfest was because of my love of Jackson Browne and his music, but
we'd come back even if he wasn't going to be there - that's what an
amazing event it is.
Thanks so much,

We're excited to announce the new Steel Bridge Songfest toolbar!
Powered by GoodSearch/GoodShop & Yahoo!
Once you add the Citizens for Our Bridge/SBSF toolbar for IE or Firefox, each time you shop at one of the more than 1,300 participating stores, a percentage of what you spend will be donated to us at no extra cost to you! (you could even save money as the toolbar provides coupons and deals).
The toolbar also has a search box and each time you search the Internet, about a penny is donated to us. No registration is required!
Just a few participating stores are:
Where Does The Money Come From?
Search engines make most of their money from companies that pay an advertising fee when users click on links during a search. At GoodSearch, we've developed a patent-pending way to track and direct these search-generated proceeds to charities. In other words, a portion of advertiser dollars (and not your own!) earned as a result of your search, are now passed along to Steel Bridge Songfest.
Do the users ever have to pay anything?
No. GoodSearch provides people a way to support their favorite cause at no cost. The money comes from the GoodSearch advertisers.
Good Shop FAQs:
Where does the money come from?
When you shop through GoodShop at one of our retail partners, GoodSearch is paid a commission. At GoodSearch, we've developed a way to track these shopping-generated proceeds and direct them to Steel Bridge Songfest.
Am I paying more to shop through GoodShop? Is this any different than buying directly from the retailer?
Absolutely not! The experience of shopping through GoodShop is exactly the same as going to the retailer directly – you receive the same prices and level of service. The retailers are responsible for collecting payment, shipping and returns.
Is shopping through GoodShop secure?
Absolutely! GoodSearch does not collect any credit card or personal information such as your name or address. The entire transaction is done directly through the merchants just as if you had gone to their store directly.
