Saccomaniacs Agriculture for Autism Golf Tournament & Tradeshow 2019

Thank you to all Volunteers for participating in the Saccomaniacs Agriculture for Autism Golf Tournament & Tradeshow. We appreciate it. With your help, we raise funds to support the Pacific Autism Family Network.  Thank you very much.

As a volunteer, we request that you register now, as we will close registrations by June 30, 2019.  This enables us to order volunteer shirts, with proper sizing, and ensure we get the best price available. 

We appreciate that you are donating your time; we ask that you respect the costs associated with each volunteer position. We love to ensure you are well fed, have adequate beverages throughout the day, have a keepsake shirt, and join us for the after tournament dinner - this year we are going backyard BBQ, a tailgate party. Going to be awesome!

This event requires pre-event training; we ask that you guarantee us you will be involved in the training for your positions, will read the job descriptions, and understand, come the day of the tournament, that we do not have time to train you.

With two golf courses, 250+ golfers, 100+ volunteers, and 40 suppliers and tradeshow booths, this is a small business. We want our guests to attend an event, where they walk away saying this was the best event ever, and the volunteers were amazing!

Thank you for committing to excellence.

Volunteer Positions are many: we customize to fit your schedule, your needs, including mentored work experience, and resume building experience.

Positions are available starting now through until the end of August 2019.
