So, let me see. You want me to work for free and pay you for the privilege? I think I will pass.

I thought the same thing...That was funny that they used the word VOLUNTEER, because that to me means no money paid...TO ANYONE...

This is normal at all of the PGA Tour Events. The payment helps cover the items you get so that more money gets to the charity that each event sponsors. I have worked at these for years and have had some of the best time especially with the Senior PGA Tour guys.

Jay, if it is a charitable donation, they should give you the deduction. Not buying it.

I would love to volunteer, I am a very healthy seventy one years old. I am now retired and live in Jerseyville I llinois. I do believe $136.00 dollars is a bit steep for a volunteer.I have volunteered in the past for the LPGA in Springfield Ill. I am still considering doing it, but the cost of driving from Jerseyville has to be considered.
