Volunteer registration and ticket sales have begun for the BMW Charity Pro-Am scheduled May 14-17 at Thornblade Club, The Reserve at Lake Keowee and Green Valley Country Club.

Volunteer registration, ticket sales and the selling of teams in the tournament’s one-day pro-am events aid are ways charities raise funds. The tournament sets 1,000 volunteers as its goal.

The Volunteer Program gives individuals the opportunity to earn $20 per day for the tournament charity of their choice. Also, once charities reach 50 volunteer workdays, they receive a $2,000 bonus. In 2014, this program generated close to $100,000 in charitable funds.

Volunteers can register for $40 through April 17 and the fee increases to $50 beginning April. 18. The fee covers the volunteer’s uniform, credentials for the volunteer and a guest to attend the tournament, food and beverages during workdays, the volunteer celebration and more. Visit bmwcharitygolf.com to register or to learn more about becoming a volunteer.

Charities will receive 100 percent of ticket sales funds up to $20,000. The tickets eligible for the 100 percent donation are daily ($10), patron ($25) and clubhouse ($50).

One-day pro-am team (foursomes) sales in the Pro-Am on Wednesday, May 13 range from $7,500 to $9,000 and include golf with a Web.com Tour professional, gift package, food, beverages and a driving session at the BMW Performance Center. Charities receive half of the purchase price for each new team sold. Contact Mike Ivester.
