The 9th annual Bank of Hope Founders Cup returns to the Valley March 18 through the 24 at Wildfire Golf Club at JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa and tickets are on sale now. New for 2019, the tournament is excited to announce two volunteer packages, one of which has a bigger incentive for those returning to volunteer again this March.  

Returning volunteers who participated in the 2018 tournament can register for a reduced price of $40. This returning volunteer package includes the tournament hat, complimentary weekly badge, six grounds tickets to share with friends and family, a commemorative lapel pin and free round of golf (if minimum hours/shifts are met). Returning volunteers must have been a part of the 2018 tournament, as they will wear those tournament polos for this year’s event.

New volunteers can join one of the many committees available. The volunteer package is $60 and includes a tournament golf shirt, tournament hat, complimentary weekly badge, 6 grounds tickets to share with friends and family, and commemorative lapel pin. If volunteers complete three shifts or the 18 hour volunteer minimum, they will receive one free round of golf at Wildfire Golf Club.  

“Our volunteers are some of the best across the LPGA tour.  Since this is our 9th year, we wanted to create more options for those who have been with us before,” said Scott Wood, tournament director. “Our event is made possible with their dedication and help.”
