FedEx St. Jude Championship asking for volunteers for the August tournament

The PGA Tour said the event has raised more than $66 million for St. Jude since 1970, largely with the help of volunteers.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The FedEx St. Jude Championship announced Tuesday that volunteer registration is now open for the 2023 event.

With the help of volunteers, sponsors and community partners, the tournament has raised more than $66 million since 1970.

While volunteer registration is free, volunteers are required to complete a minimum of three shifts during tournament week. Upon registration, volunteers will receive a Nike Golf polo, Nike Golf hat or Ahead visor, working credential, and free parking pass on working days.

Additionally, volunteers have access to the BlueCross BlueShield Volunteer Headquarters where light breakfast and full lunch, snacks and refreshments are available every working day. The Volunteer Headquarters is also where volunteers can pick up a tote bag with various goodies and coupons or relax before their shifts.
