Hi kellodge,
We don't hear of this often and it's a tricky topic. When you think of it, volunteers shouldn't be paid. It's the whole point of volunteering, really.

At the elementary school, we did not compensate volunteers. At the middle school, we have some events that are PTO-funded, but run by teachers who receive a stipend. It's not quite the same sort of event as yours, but there is some money involved.
