The opening event of the FedExCup Playoffs returns, August 9-13
MEMPHIS, Tennessee – The FedEx St. Jude Championship announced today that volunteer registration is now open for the 2023 event. Volunteering offers a variety of opportunities to get involved with the PGA TOUR’s annual Memphis event when the FedExCup Playoffs return to TPC Southwind from Aug. 9-13.
Volunteers are an integral part of the FedEx St. Jude Championship and make it possible to conduct a world-class tournament by devoting time, talent and passion to help run aspects of the event.
The FedEx St. Jude Championship also provides significant charitable impact for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. With the help of our volunteers, sponsors and community partners, the tournament has raised more than $66 million since 1970.
While volunteer registration is free thanks to the support from partners BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee and Nike, FedEx St. Jude Championship volunteers are required to complete a minimum of three shifts during tournament week. Upon registration, volunteers will receive a Nike Golf polo, Nike Golf hat or Ahead visor, working credential, and free parking pass on working days.
Additionally, volunteers have access to the BlueCross BlueShield Volunteer Headquarters where light breakfast and full lunch, snacks and refreshments are available every working day. The Volunteer Headquarters is also where volunteers can pick up a tote bag with various goodies and coupons or relax before their shifts.
A unique aspect of volunteering at the FedEx St. Jude Championship is the Hours for St. Jude presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee program – an opportunity for volunteers to receive donations for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in honor of their volunteer efforts.
Once volunteers complete registration, a fundraising page for Hours for St. Jude is automatically created for them. Volunteers can accept donations from family and friends through their personal page as they seek to hit different incentive levels for milestones all while raising money for St. Jude’s mission. Since its inaugural year in 2013, Hours for St. Jude has raised over $2.5 million for the hospital.
