Volunteering for the #SASChampionship is a great way to give back to the community, as the event is committed to giving back to the YMCA of the Triangle. Other benefits include the opportunity to work with family & friends, make new friends and watch some of golf's legends compete right here in the Triangle. There are over 20 Volunteer committees so you are sure to find an activity which appeals to your interests (descriptions are posted on a separate tab). You will also receive a Volunteer Package that is valued over $300, filled with Tournament gear and passes.
