Georgia Urology and Boston Scientific return as sponsors of the Volunteer Headquarters
Local urology practice to provide support for 1,300 volunteers during tournament week
ATLANTA – The TOUR Championship today announced the return of Georgia Urology and Boston Scientific as sponsors of the tournament’s Volunteer Headquarters, which serves as the hub of activity for more than 1,300 volunteers as they fuel up ahead of a big day or unwind and recap the sights and sounds around East Lake Golf Club.
The TOUR Championship serves as the culminating event of the FedExCup Playoffs and PGA TOUR season, where only the top 30 players in the FedExCup standings will advance to East Lake Golf Club, August 23-27, for a chance to win the PGA TOUR’s Ultimate Prize – the FedExCup.
“Giving back remains a driving force behind Georgia Urology’s overall mission,” said Dr. Carl Capelouto, a senior urologist with Georgia Urology, “and the volunteerism at the TOUR Championship enables the tournament to do phenomenal work for the community. This echoes the practice’s values, which inspires us to continue to offer our unwavering support.”
From Gallery Management Ambassadors to youth standard bearers, TOUR Championship volunteers help organize, coordinate, and manage the event in various capacities that allows the event to donate back to the community. Since first being played at East Lake in 1998 the TOUR Championship has given back more than $48 million to charity – including a record $5.5 million from the 2022 event – and supporting the event’s five charitable beneficiaries: East Lake Foundation, First Tee – Metro Atlanta, Grove Park Foundation, Focused Community Strategies and Purpose Built Schools Atlanta.
“Our volunteer force is what brings the TOUR Championship to life,” said Alex Urban, Executive Director of the TOUR Championship. “The support from Georgia Urology and Boston Scientific is so impactful to ensure our volunteers have a memorable TOUR Championship experience while helping us continue to drive meaningful dollars back to our charitable beneficiaries.”
