Volunteers Needed for Boca Raton Regional Hospital!

Date of Event: February 5-11, 2018
Juniors will be needed only on Friday-Sunday of this week: February 9-11, 2018
Name: Boca Raton Regional Hospital Championship
Type of volunteers needed are: Juniors (Standard Bears, Scoring Tent Runners)
We encourage juniors who are 12 and up to apply for volunteering for these positions. If they are younger and want to participate, we ask that a parent will be there with them. We have had some juniors that are younger than 10 and it was a success.
Adults and College students: We are always in need of more Marshals for the tournament to help on the tee box (make sure people are behind the ropes etc.) , and to help with crowd crossing to the next hole.
There is also a promotion going on until September 3rd that all volunteers (other than juniors and collegiate)  will have a discounted rate for their fee which will underwrite costs of uniforms and help with donations to the hospital.
