We are grateful to share with you that Roper Mountain Science Center has been chosen as one of the featured charities of the BMW Charity Pro-Am tournament, taking place June 6-9 at Thornblade Club and The Cliffs Valley. As one of the featured charities, Roper Mountain will receive the entire proceeds from ticket sales, one-half of the proceeds from the volunteer registration fees for those who volunteer and choose Roper Mountain as their beneficiary, and the proceeds from anyone who donates to Birdies for Charity.
So, whether you're an avid golfer or just want to support Roper Mountain Science Center, there are several opportunities to get in on the action at this year's tournament, listed below.
Volunteers typically work a 6-hour shift one (or more) of the tournament days. You may choose when and where you work, plus which job you would like on a first-come, first-register basis. Most positions do not require golf acumen to do. The cost to volunteer is $40, which covers your volunteer polo shirt, headwear, volunteer credential, guest credential, food and beverages during volunteer days, and more. Roper Mountain will receive $20 for each person who volunteers and chooses us as their beneficiary. Register online (be sure to select Roper Mountain Science Center).
