Cone Health Joins Wyndham Championship As Offical Volunteer Sponsor

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Cone Health has joined the Wyndham Championship as its official volunteer sponsor, it was announced today.  With the first round of the Piedmont Triad’s PGA TOUR event now just six weeks from today, time is getting short, but the tournament continues to accept volunteer applications. The 72nd annual Wyndham Championship is set for Aug. 15-21 at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.

As the official volunteer sponsor, Cone Health will support all volunteers with its logo adorning volunteer shirts and hats as well as the volunteer headquarters tent located near the putting green at Sedgefield Country Club.  More than 8,200 Cone Health employees are dedicated to improving the health and well being of people throughout the region.

“Our 1,500 volunteers play a major role in the success of the Wyndham Championship every year,” tournament director Mark Brazil said.  “To have Cone Health join us as our official volunteer sponsor speaks volumes about its support of the Wyndham Championship and volunteerism in the Triad. We really appreciate all that our volunteers do and are looking forward to a successful 2011 event with Cone Health’s support.”

“The Piedmont Triad would not be able to host this PGA TOUR stop  – which truly shines the national spotlight on our community – without the tremendous support of so many dedicated volunteers,” Cone Health president and CEO Tim Rice said.  “Our tournament, our city and the entire Piedmont Triad community are indebted to each of them.”

Some 1,500 volunteers work the Wyndham each year serving in roles such as gallery control, standard bearers, walking scorers, ShotLink laser operators, pro-am caddies, course management, concessions and more. Volunteers may purchase the tournament’s volunteer package which includes a Zero Restriction Wyndham Championship golf shirt, a tournament hat and poncho as well as a drawstring bag for $45.  In addition, volunteers receive weekly tournament admission, a weekly ticket book for a guest, free parking as well as food and drinks when working.  If purchased separately, the package would be a $335 value.
