Endless hours, sacrifices, and dedication mixed with talent and skill are the components of a  volunteer.  Without volunteers who are eager to give of their self and time, events like the Beaufort Pirate Invasion would not be possible.
We begin each year with a team of individuals that are committed and have the energy it takes to come aboard as a volunteer. It takes approximately 100 volunteers who are willing to chair a committee, join in the planning process or assist in the execution and presentation of bringing this historical event alive. We invite you to come aboard and sign up to volunteer today.
So get your pirate on and come play pirate with us.
