DULUTH, GA – The Mitsubishi Electric Classic presented by Vensure is proud to recognize the recipients of its Volunteer of the Year honors for last year’s tournament. Supported by RS Andrews, the volunteer program provides opportunities for hundreds of community residents to take a hands-on role in driving the success of the tournament.

The 2023 Volunteer of the Year is Lanier Griffin (Standard Bearer), while the Volunteer Leader of the year is Barbara Boll (Hospitality). Last year, more than 500 individuals spent countless hours on the course and behind the scenes of the annual PGA TOUR Champions event, a tribute to the spirit of volunteerism that exists in the Gwinnett County community, as well as the PGA TOUR Champions.

Additionally, the tournament is currently seeking its final volunteers for 2024. The hard work and dedication of its volunteers has fueled the tournament’s success and helped to raise more than $4.13 million for local charities.

“We are thankful to the men and women from across our community who contributed to the resounding success of last year’s tournament,” said Ashley Hamilton, senior tournament director of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic presented by Vensure. “Our volunteers are the engine behind our tournament, enabling us to provide an unparalleled environment for our fans and players alike. Their dedication and determination empower us to curate the best tournament experience possible.”

Individuals can register for a variety of roles in the communication, hospitality, marshals, player services, scoring, tournament services and volunteer services committees. The tournament will attempt to accommodate the committee preference of all volunteers, and a complete list of volunteer committees and their descriptions is available here.

In 2024, volunteers can choose from three different registration options, each with a parking pass and additional levels of promotion. The complimentary Driver with License option includes a logoed t-shirt, volunteer parking pass, meals during shifts, a grounds badge and a 15% discount on merchandise. The Standard Bearers package includes those amenities in addition to a ball cap/visor, logoed clear backpack, volunteer pin and personalized credential, and it is available for $25.

The Volunteer option is available for $85, and it comes with the other tiered promotions and a logoed polo shirt, a quarter-zip pullover, and the opportunity to play the course post-tournament.
