NHCO Urgently Needs Volunteers for US Open
Do you love the game of golf, or doing something meaningful with a group of friends?
North Hills Community Outreach urgently needs volunteers to register to help in our assigned concessions tent at the Men’s US Open golf tournament, June 13-19, at Oakmont Country Club. The Open donates funds for each NHCO volunteer hour served.
This is a huge fundraising opportunity for us, but we need your help! Before or after finishing an eight-hour shift in the Open’s only air-conditioned concessions tent, volunteers can watch golf’s greatest athletes in action. Lunch is provided.

Please note: This opportunity involves a considerable amount of standing and walking. Volunteers 14-17 must be accompanied by a volunteer 18 or older.

Please contact Harriet at hzgibbs@nhco.org or 412-408-3830 x 3204.
Or register directly at volunteerspot.com/login/entry/679052588051
