TOUR Championship Volunteer Challenge
For the past 17 years, the TOUR Championship has called East Lake home. The grand finale of the PGA TOUR’s season-long FedEx Cup, the tournament would not be possible without a slew of volunteers who dedicate their time and energy each September.
While the PGA TOUR players battle it out on one of the game’s most revered courses, the volunteers have a competition of their own. The PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge sponsored by Myrbetriq® is a fun, friendly vote-for-me competition designed to express appreciation to tournament volunteers for their passion, commitment and hard work, while enabling volunteers to help tournaments raise funds for charity.
TOUR Championship volunteers are currently competing for votes to raise funds for The East Lake Foundation and The First Tee® of East Lake. You can vote for your favorite volunteer or the tournament itself at TourChallenge.com/TOURChampionship. Voting for the tournament is a great option for fans who would like their votes to go toward supporting the organizations vying for the prize, but may not personally know any volunteer teams.
Thank you to volunteers Tammy Aguilar, Chad Boone, Kim Dearborn, and Jay Laney competing on behalf of The First Tee of East Lake; DJ Deng, Valencia Ellison, Matt Lacey, Kelly Lee, Phil Read, William Simon, David Thompson, and Dave Wilkins competing on behalf of the East Lake Foundation; Debra Forrester, Mary Annjanette Jocom, Deborah Stone, and Erin and Spencer Taft competing for The First Tee® of Atlanta.
On Saturday, the volunteer team with the most votes wins the opportunity to present a check for $10,000 to the winning charity – which with all volunteers competing on behalf of the East Lake Foundation programs, will directly benefit the East Lake Community.
It’s up to the voters to raise any additional funds for the East Lake Foundation and The First Tee of East Lake. The tournament can raise an additional $10,000 in charitable funds if 10,000 or more votes are cast by Saturday. In addition, if the TOUR Championship receives the most votes of any of the 16 other PGA tournaments participating in the PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge sponsored by Myrbetriq®, the East Lake Foundation and The First Tee of East Lake could receive up to $55,000.
Vote at TourChallenge.com/TOURChampionship by Saturday Sept. 23. Encourage your friends and family to vote via social media using #YouVoteCharitiesWin. Thank you to the great volunteers not only for your time to help make the TOUR Championship a success, but also for raising important funds that support the mission and work of the East Lake Foundation and The First Tee of East Lake.
