Support for 1,300 Volunteers Will Allow the TOUR Championship to Give Back to the East Lake Community
Georgia Urology announced today a major sponsorship associated with the TOUR Championship, which will be held September 1-5 (Labor Day Weekend) at East Lake Golf Club.
Georgia Urology will partner with Boston Scientific to sponsor the Volunteer Headquarters, the dedicated area where the more than 1,300 volunteers who make the tournament possible can check in and rest, relax, and refresh.
TOUR Championship volunteers help organize, coordinate, and manage the event in various capacities which allows the event to donate back to the community. Since first being played at East Lake in 1998 the TOUR Championship has given back over $38 million to charity, primarily benefiting the East Lake Foundation, the First Tee of Metro Atlanta, Grove Park Foundation and Purpose Built Schools Atlanta.
“We are proud to support the volunteers at the TOUR Championship,” said Dan Fellner, CEO of Georgia Urology. “These are the men and women whose involvement helps Atlanta host the TOUR Championship and allows the tournament to do so much for our community. It aligns perfectly with our values and actions at Georgia Urology.”
“Volunteers are the heart and soul of our tournament. Simply put, the TOUR Championship would not be possible without the commitment from our volunteers,” said Allison Fillmore, Executive Director of the TOUR Championship. “By stepping up for them, Georgia Urology and Boston Scientific are stepping up for our community.”
The TOUR Championship features the top 30 professional golfers on the PGA Tour, and the winner receives the FedExCup as the season-long champion.
