JOIN US FOR OUR A UNIQUE FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY!
(Registration for shifts will open August 1st.)
Youth Unlimited has been asked to partner with Shaw Charity Classic once again. This is an event where the champions of golf come out to play and crowds of spectators gather.
August 28 - September 1st is when Ecology becomes our task and where teamwork and networking are key!
Our task is to walk the greens and gather (pre-bagged) recyclable bottles/cans and empty the trash receptacles, refreshing them with new bags. It's not a glamorous job but it gives you an opportunity to sneak a peek at such an elite event, meet new people and help raise funds for a charity. We are organizing two shifts which are open to vounteers starting on the Friday.
The tournament is making a donation to Youth Unlimited for this project. If you sign up as a helper for one of our staff, every hour you work will help bring in a dollar amount for that staff member or program! So this is a tangible way to help support those you believe in! Last year our team was able to bring in $15,000.00+!
We will provide you with gloves, bottled water, a special parking pass, shuttling from the parking lot to the grounds and back at the end of your shift. There are food vendors on the course with food for purchase. You may also want to bring your own bagged lunch that can be stored in our coolers. You will be outside so please dress accordingly and you will be doing a lot of walking. T-SHIRTS WILL BE PROVIDED for you to wear while assisting this project.
1. WHEN REGISTERING AND PLANNING TO PARK AT THE EVENT, please be sure to request a parking pass in your submission and one will be emailed to you.
2. IF YOU ARE REGISTERING A GROUP, please let us know how many in your group will be joining you and how many parking passes you will need.
3. SHUTTLE SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE AT THE ST. MARY'S UNIVERSITY PARKING LOT and you will be brought to a main entry point on the golf course. You will want to grab a map and then follow to the meeting place as shown below. If this is your first time, our Ecology tent can be hard to find so please text me at the number provided below for on-site instructions.
