Volunteer Ambassadors

Dine To Be Kind wouldn't be possible without the help of our generous Restaurant Ambassadors. We are looking for enthusiastic and outgoing individuals with a passion for animal welfare in our community. In years' past almost one-third of the funds raised during this event are a direct result of amazing Restaurant Ambassadors!

Being an Ambassador is a great way to rally support for Buncombe County’s neediest animals and an even better way to reconnect with friends, coworkers, family, and business associates.  Ambassadors promote their restaurant to everyone they know with the goal of filling the restaurant!​

Ambassadors are the face of Asheville Humane Society. During each shift, volunteers help by:

          •        Greeting diners and giving a brief intro on Dine To Be Kind

          •        Handing out donation envelopes and literature

          •        Thanking diners for supporting Dine to Be Kind

          •        Collecting donation envelopes

We would love to find folks who have a relationship with the restaurant they choose. If you frequently dine somewhere, know someone involved with a particular restaurant, or just really love a particular restaurant or brewery and would like to represent AHS during Dine (or Drink) to Be Kind, please email Rob at rbutler[at]ashevillehumane[dot]org!  In your email, please indicate your shift preference (lunch or dinner) and the restaurant or brewery you'd prefer. If you have no preference, let us know and we will place you. Rob will get back to you with more details and information!
