A Call for Volunteers & Other Needs

A call for volunteers has been issued by the PGA Korn Ferry Tour’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper, which will play July 21-24 at Highland Springs Country Club in Springfield.

The PCCC’s Volunteer Army is generally 1,000 people strong annually, with numerous positions still needed to fill: marshals, walking scorers, on-course services, hospitality and standard bearers and more. The tournament is seeking to fill 120 positions.

Volunteers may register online at www.pricecuttercc.org, or by stopping by the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, 3861 E. Stan Musial Drive in Springfield. Contact Volunteer Chair Sharon Alexander at 417.884.3671 or at sharon@lsosm.org.

“The PGA Korn Ferry Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper could not function at an optimal level without the hundreds of volunteers who donate their time and energy to the cause,” Alexander said. “The list of responsibilities covered by the volunteers ranges from marshaling a hole to serving as a walking scorer to preparing food for the volunteers. The volunteers play a role in stabilizing the tournament structure.”

The call for volunteers comes as the calendar nears the bulk of the tournament’s fundraising events, which will assist 50 Ozarks children’s charities. A number of sponsorships also remain available. For instance:

Honoring Our Heroes presented the Honor Flight of the Ozarks

Want to help retired and current military, law enforcement, first responders and nurses – and their families – attend free of charge?

The Honoring Our Heroes presented by the Honor Flight of the Ozarks has sponsorships available to make that happen. The families will have seating in a tent near the No. 18 green and free access to the Ozarks Club food and beverage tent. Snacks and beverages also will be available in the tent.

Sponsorships levels include sign recognition at the tent and corporate ticket packages: choose $1,500 for Hero, or $1,000 for Commander, or $500 for Patriot or $250 for Recruit. Call 417-887-3400.
