Volunteer Newsletter 2018

Omni Tucson National Resort Tucson, Arizona

WELCOME

Dear Volunteer, 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Tucson Conquistadores Classic, an Official PGA TOUR Champions Event.

We welcome back our past volunteers with sincere appreciation. We cannot do it without you.

To new potential volunteers, we hope you sign up today to experience the tournament up close and personal. Please look around this site for more information on volunteering for the tournament and feel free to call us with any questions.

Please note, your tireless commitment and dedication to our mission is important to our success. Did you know we contributed over $500,000 to local youth charities last fiscal year?

Your commitment also sends a welcome message to the PGA TOUR's Champions Tour, players, media, and spectators who choose to call our community home for tournament week.

Just a handful of the tournament’s beneficiaries include The First Tee of Tucson, Boys & Girls Clubs (Tucson, Sierra Vista, Bisbee, and Nogales), Special Olympics, YMCA of Southern Arizona, Sporting Chance Center at Curtis Park, and hundreds more.  We hope you will join us as we strive to raise even more for the local youth and special needs athletics in Southern Arizona.

Take a thorough look through this website as it has valuable and pertinent information.   To apply as a volunteer, please Click here for Online Volunteer Application.  Please note, all volunteers are required to purchase a volunteer package which helps offset a part of the actual volunteer expenses so the tournament can continue to help local charitable youth organizations. 

The chairperson of your committee will contact you in February to confirm which shifts and days you are available to work. Thank you in advance for your time and effort, we look forward to working with you to ensure the success of the Tucson Conquistadores Classic. We are confident that you will find this experience to be extremely rewarding. If you have any questions, please call the Tournament Office at (520) 571-0400.

Sincerely,

Tucson Conquistadores Membership and Staff
