Volunteers needed to staff 3rd Annual LPGA Event
ROGERS, AR - Tournament officials for the P&G Beauty NW Arkansas Championship presented by John Q. Hammons have announced that tickets are now available for the 2009 LPGA Tour event held September 7 - 13, 2009 at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers. In addition, the tournament is still in need of volunteers to staff the event.
"Given the times that we are in, our event is receiving great support from the Northwest Arkansas community," said Tournament Chairman Jay Allen. "However, we do need a strong base of volunteers to put this event on. Being a volunteer to an LPGA event does require a personal commitment, but the unique thing about it is that you are actually part of the game, and you receive an inside look at the staging and execution of a true major league sports event."
Daily tickets are $15 Tuesday - Thursday of tournament week and $25 for championship play, Friday - Sunday. Week-long grounds badges can be purchased for $50. Fans can purchase online at www.PGBeautyChampionship.com or by calling (479) 715-6100.
The tournament will continue to allow 20 area charitable organizations who are dedicated to children and children's health the opportunity to sell weekly grounds badges while keeping 100 percent of the proceeds. To support your favorite participating charity, visit www.PGBeautyChampionship.com.
Tournament officials are also calling on residents to support their community and local charities by volunteering for the 2009 tournament. Each year, over 700 volunteers donate their time and energy to ensure the tournament's success. Volunteering is a great way to have fun, support your community and watch the best female golfers in the world. There are a number of different committees, each with unique responsibilities, including: Marshals, Standard Bearers, Scoring, Transportation and TV support. Those interested must be at least 16 years old to volunteer, however golf knowledge is not required. Staff will provide training sessions for certain committees.
The volunteer fee is $75 and includes two official volunteer shirts and a hat. Antigua is the official volunteer uniform provider. Volunteers also receive free entry and parking to the event all week and additional weekly grounds passes to give to friends. Breakfast and lunch are provided on scheduled work days, and an invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party will be extended prior to the event.
