Over 500 volunteers sought for PGA TOUR event in October

The Butterfield Bermuda Championship’s BF&M Volunteer Programme for adults and juniors is now accepting online applications. The tournament returns for its fourth year from October 24th – 30th at Port Royal Golf Course, Southampton.

Over 500 volunteers will be required to fill positions on 17 committees, ranging from gallery management ambassadors, walking scorers, and TV spotters, to merchandise, pro-am and product distribution. A full list of committees can be viewed on the tournament website and interested volunteers should visit https://trusteventsolutions.com/event/43/home to apply. Early submission is encouraged, particularly for any specified preferences.

“We at BF&M are proud to return as Sponsor of the Volunteer programme and we are looking forward to another successful event” said John Wight, Group Chairman and CEO of BF&M Limited. “A key element of the success of this world-class championship is you—year after year our Volunteers do a fantastic job. We are proud also to support an event which gives so much back to the community, both through its charitable giving initiatives like Birdies for Charity, and through the positive economic impact and exposure it generates for Bermuda.”

The BF&M Volunteer Programme is open to anyone 18 years of age and older. Golf knowledge isn’t required and the tournament has a variety of opportunities for both golfers and non-golfers alike.

Young people aged 13–17 also have the opportunity to volunteer as a Standard Bearer, an exciting role of walking inside-the-ropes with a player group while carrying a two-sided scoring standard. This role is available on the Saturday and Sunday of tournament week. It is a popular choice and positions fill up quickly.

“The Butterfield Bermuda Championship would not be possible without the dedication of our over 500 volunteers. BF&M has stepped up to enhance the volunteer package this year with additional incentives and we are excited to continue to grow our program with the support of BF&M and the local community” said Tournament Director, Danielle Baiunco, “We encourage volunteers to register with us early and to donate their time on behalf of a charity of their choice to maximize their impact.”

Volunteers are asked to work a minimum of three shifts, which range from four to six hours each, depending on the committee. There is the option for volunteers to have an even greater impact by chosing to donate their time on behalf of a registered charity, which will see the chosen charity receive $200.

This year volunteers will enjoy an official tournament polo and tournament jacket courtesy of BF&M as well as a tournament hat, volunteer credentials providing access to the event at all times, BF&M accessories, lunch on volunteer days, and more.

Interested volunteers can apply now and charities can email Arden to learn more about getting involved. For more information on the Butterfield Bermuda Championship, visit http://www.butterfieldbdachampionship.com/.
