<b>A Volunteer Experience Unlike Any Other<b>

There aren't many volunteer opportunities that enable you to keep score for a golf legend. Or drive a major championship winner to the airport. Or walk 18 holes with a threesome like Fred Couples, Tom Watson and Mark O'Meara

Then again, volunteering for the Toshiba Classic might be the most unique experience in sports. It puts you right in the middle of an official PGA TOUR-sanctioned tournament--and right in the middle of the most philanthropic event of the year in Orange County.

If you're a fan of professional golf, you'll simply never have a better chance to get this close to the action. And even if you're not a golf fanatic, you can play a major role at the Toshiba Classic. There are plenty of volunteer committees that don't require any golf knowledge whatsoever.

Regardless on which committee you serve, you'll be an important part of the most respected volunteer force on the PGA Champions Tour, a team that enables this tournament to make record-setting donations to charity every year.

Join us and you'll experience the camaraderie of working alongside great people, the pride of staging an internationally televised event, and the thrill of making a profound difference in your community.

<b>What are the Requirements of a Volunteer?<b>

All volunteers must work a minimum of two days. However, some committees require more than two days. Please arrive for your shift on time and be sure to alert the tournament if any schedule changes affect your availability.

<b>Why is There a Fee to Volunteer?<b>

So that the tournament charity can benefit as much as possible, your payment of $65 helps offset the cost of the volunteer package, which includes:

* One red Cutter & Buck golf shirt with TC logo (mens and ladies styles available)

* One Cutter & Buck jacket with TC logo (mens and ladies styles available)

* One hat with TC logo

* Preferred parking during your shifts

* Breakfast service and food vouchers on the days you work (value of $20 per day)

* One week-long badge for admission during the entire tournament (value of $100)

* Two additional one-day tickets for guests (value of $40)

* An invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party (value of $80)
