By volunteering to work at the PNC Arena as part of the WJHS crew, you will have the opportunity to meet other band parents, witness the excitement of professional hockey and ACC basketball, learn the art of keeping up with multiple orders and pouring the perfect draft, meet other parents from other organizations that are working for their kids as well and learn the inner workings of a catering facility. Best of all, you will be earning money toward your child’s IE account without taking money out of your personal bank account. PNC is a great earning opportunity AND it’s a lot of fun!
PNC Fact Sheets
WJHS-BPA is contracted with the PNC Arena to man a concession stand as a fund raising organization. We are responsible for staffing the stand at all of the Hurricanes hockey games and NC State basketball games. Beyond that we work other events that we choose throughout the year including concerts, seminars and other sporting events. We rely on this stand as an organization, as it brings in approximately $35,000 a year to our ban program. To maintain our contractual obligations, it is important that we meet our obligation to staff the stand every year. It’s a great way to earn money toward your IE… and it’s fun!
A percentage of the stand earnings is allocated to WJHS-BPA and that is divided among the workers of an event, based on the hours worked. It is accrued by the BPA Treasurer to be used toward your child’s IE.
A uniform is required, per our contract with PNC. The uniform is a Teal West Golf Shirt, West Ball Cap, black apron, black pants and black shoes. The golf shirt, hat and apron are available through the WJHS-BPA PNC Coordinator. Please contact Mary Lahr Cain at for questions or to place an order.
BARS (Be A Responsible Server) training is necessary to serve alcoholic beverages and is conducted at no cost at the PNC Center multiple times a year. NC State basketball games are considered non-alcohol events and there are several other non-alcohol events throughout the year.
Scheduling your volunteer hours at PNC is done through an online system. The WJHS PNC Calendar is available at https://wjhspnccalendar.acuityscheduling.com/. You will need an account to accurately track events you have volunteered to work.
PNC is a great way to meet other parents and get to know them. There is a sense of camaraderie that develops in the group. We have a lot of fun and you will feel like you are in high school again working the local fast food hangout. All the while you will be paying your IE without taking money out of your personal bank account.
