JOIN OUR VOLUNTEER WORKFORCE

Become part of the LDB ICE Workforce and earn money for your non-profit organization.

Every year the Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby relies on the support of its volunteers to help us put on the best event possible. Perhaps what you didn’t know is that we pay our volunteers Community Volunteer Organization Hours – CVO Hours.

CVO Hours are for local non-profit organizations and are part of the way we reinvest the Derby profits back into our community! In 2020, organizations will be paid $18 per man hour worked on their behalf!
