Come see the greatest golfers in the world and help fellow Hokies!
Please join with other Charlotte Hokies at Quail Hollow in working concessions at the Wells Fargo Championship from Wednesday, May 2 – Sunday, May 6 . We’ll be raising money to fund our local chapter scholarship program as well as chapter activities that support this program.
When you volunteer with us at the Wells Fargo Championship, you are given free admission for the half of the day that you do not work (either before or after the shift you select [see below]). As a volunteer, you also receive a free meal voucher the day of your shift.
We will be working with the same vendor from previous years, running Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream carts (located in prime positions along the course).
Some Important Notes:
The Championship has strict dress requirements. Please read these and contact one of our representatives (listed below) if you have any questions.
There are various shuttles and other transportation options. Please read this overview for more information.
Plan on arriving a half hour early in order to check in and basic training. Please take into consideration any possible delays in the shuttle loading/unloading and the on-course walking time to make sure you arrive at the appropriate time
All volunteers must be at least 16 years of age or up (ages 16-18, working with an adult).
Actual Testimonials From Our Volunteers:
“I look so forward to doing this event each year! What a wonderful way to spend a nice spring day! You only have to work a half-day. The rest of the day you can walk around and enjoy the golfers. If you don’t like to watch golfers, it is a beautiful course to walk around and look at the awesome houses. It is wonderful that you enjoy the event, plus you are helping scholarships for VT prospects. I can’t wait!”
“Wednesday was great; Phil Mickelson stopped by and bought ice cream for a bunch of people. The players aren’t allowed to stop and talk on Thursday through Sunday.”
“Angel Cabrera ‘s ball hit my cart. He had to play it and I got a story to tell and my picture in the Charlotte Observer.”
“This almost sounds like a scam, but from volunteering for many years, I can testify that it’s not… All you have to do is spend a few hours selling Ben & Jerry’s ice cream bars. In return you get free admission to the tournament (worth $55 – $75, depending on the day), a food voucher for a free sandwich, side, and a drink (worth over $10), AND you get to eat free Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream (valued at $5). You get much more out of it than you put in.“

Morning shifts run from 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM and afternoon shifts run from 1:30 PM to close (which is usually ~ 5:30 PM, but this depends on cart location and potential delays in play – as such, we cannot guarantee a time).
