Volunteer Registration Opens for Memorial Health Championship

Volunteer registration is now open for the Memorial Health Championship, a PGA TOUR-sanctioned golf tournament at Panther Creek Country Club. Tournament officials announced that COUNTRY® Financial will continue to serve as the Official Sponsor of the volunteer program.


The tournament is looking to recruit more than 400 volunteers to fill over 20 different committees at this year’s event scheduled for June 24 - 30. As the sponsor of the volunteer program, COUNTRY will support this dedicated team of people who perform a variety of critical needs throughout the week. Whether one is a golf novice, an avid fan, volunteered in the past, or a new volunteer, there is something for everyone. 


"At COUNTRY Financial, supporting our communities is just one way we help people experience more. We are proud to once again support the volunteers that play such a pivotal role in the success of this tournament,” says JR Earley, Agency Manager of COUNTRY Financial. "Supporting events like the Memorial Health Championship are at the core of what we stand for, so we are excited to continue our support of professional golf in Central Illinois.” 


There are numerous perks offered for volunteers including branded apparel, meals while working, weekly credentials for volunteers, additional tickets for family and friends and the opportunity to play the Championship’s host course in the volunteer golf outing. There are also a limited number of junior volunteer opportunities available during tournament week and provides a great way to earn service hours.


"We are excited to launch registration for the COUNTRY Financial volunteer program and continue working with this group of very special people,” said tournament director Kate Peters. "Volunteers play an essential role in every aspect of tournament operations and are vital to our goal of raising charitable dollars for the five foundations of Memorial Health.”
