Vote now for our PGA Tour volunteer! Challenge ends on Saturday, Aug. 26

Please help us raise funds for the Society by voting for Robert Dow, president of Perks and a volunteer again this year in the PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge. He's currently in the No. 1 spot, but he needs more votes to stay there. Please help him maintain his lead by voting now, if you haven't already.

Robert, a longtime The Northern Trust (formerly the Barclays) tournament volunteer, has selected the American Cancer Society once again as his charity of choice. Voting runs through August 26. 

Although The Northern Trust charity of choice is Tackle Kids Cancer, which is listed for all volunteers, Robert is competing for the chance to present a $5,000 check to ACS. "This cause is near and dear to my family," he said. "My wife is a breast cancer survivor, my mother-in-law is a 30-year breast cancer survivor, my wife's grandmother died from ovarian cancer, and my sister-in-law was diagnosed with cancer."

The details

You can only vote once per email address, and before you can cast your vote you will be asked to fill out a short form. Once you vote, you will need to confirm your email and then your vote will be counted. You'll get a message like the one you see in the top photo.

Background

Each year, the PGA TOUR and its tournaments raise millions of dollars for charity, with more than $2.14 billion raised to date. Fans can get in on the charitable giving by participating in the PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge, designed to raise funds for a variety of non-profit organizations and philanthropic causes while recognizing the talent, passion, and commitment of PGA TOUR volunteers in communities nationwide.

To participate in the PGA TOUR Volunteer Challenge, volunteers register on the website and then invite their friends and family members to vote for them as their favorite tournament volunteer. At the end of the voting period, the volunteer with the most votes will win the chance to donate $5,000 in his or her name to the charity of their choice from an approved list of charities selected by the tournament.

Take action

Please vote for Robert today, and encourage your colleagues, friends, and family to do the same!

Remember, voting ends on Saturday, August 26.
