As part of the PGA TOUR’s The Barclays championship, Robert, a long-time The Barclays tournament volunteer, is participating in the PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge. From now until Saturday, August 27, you can help keep Robert in the lead by taking less than 1 minute to VOTE!
The winner of this fun, friendly vote-for-me competition will have the chance to present a check for $5,000 to the approved charity of their choice. Robert has selected the American Cancer Society as his chosen charity, and says the following as his reasoning:
“This cause is near and dear to my family. My wife is a five-year breast cancer survivor, my mother-in-law is a 30-year breast cancer survivor, my wife’s grandmother died from ovarian cancer, and my sister-in-law was just diagnosed with cancer. We live with this terrible disease every single day and we are hopeful that a cure will be found.”
Each year, the PGA TOUR and its tournaments raise millions of dollars for charity, with more than $2.14 billion raised to date. Now, tournament fans can get in on the charitable giving by participating in the PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge. Part of the TOUR’s “Together anything’s possible” charitable mission, this friendly vote-for-me competition is designed to raise funds for a variety of non-profit organizations and philanthropic causes while recognizing the talent, passion and commitment of PGA TOUR volunteers in communities nationwide.
To participate in the PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge, volunteers register on the website and then invite their friends and family members to vote for them as their favorite tournament volunteer. At the end of the voting period, the volunteer with the most votes will win the chance to donate $5,000 in his or her name to the charity of their choice from an approved list of charities selected by the tournament.
Please vote today and encourage your colleagues, friends, and family to do the same!
