THE HEART OF THE EVENT

Every year, more than 4,000 people donate their time and effort to volunteer for the Travelers Championship. Our volunteers spend countless hours throughout the week to help deliver a world-class PGA TOUR experience for players, fans and the media. By volunteering, you not only get the chance to go behind the scenes at Connecticut’s largest sporting event, but you can also feel good about investing your time as the Travelers Championship donates 100 percent of its net proceeds to more than 100 charities throughout New England.

 

“Volunteering at the Travelers Championship is a great conversation-starter. I love telling people how the tournament, one of only two professional PGA TOUR events in New England, is a gathering spot for community leaders, local celebrities, and of course some of the world’s best golfers. Volunteers play a key role in crafting and executing a memorable event for Connecticut.”
