The uniform package includes a golf shirt and hat, two passes to the tournament (one for the volunteer and one guest pass), food and beverages for volunteers during shifts, and an invitation to the all-volunteer party to be held at a later date in the summer.

Uniform pick-up is Saturday, April 26, 2003, at Cliffs Valley golf course. An informative brochure will be mailed to all volunteers with assigned pick-up times.

The BMW Charity Pro-Am at The Cliffs golf tournament will be played May 1-4, 2003 at Cliffs Valley and The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards courses, where amateurs and celebrities will be grouped with Nationwide PGA Tour professionals. All four rounds will be televised live by The Golf Channel.

The tournament is the premier event on the Nationwide PGA Tour and is the only event that features professionals paired with an amateur/celebrity partner in a two-day best-ball competition. The 14 lowest scoring teams (10 Pro-Celeb and four Pro-Am) advance to play for the BMW Charity Cup on Saturday. The professional winner of the overall 72-hole event will take home $103,500 from the total purse of $575,000, while the amateurs/celebrities will compete for individual prizes and cash donations to the charity of their choice out of the 48 beneficiaries selected by South Carolina Charities, Inc.

The first two tournaments have raised over $1 million for charity.

South Carolina Charities, Inc., a foundation supported in part by BMW Manufacturing Corp., is in the process of determining which celebrities will participate in the 2003 tournament.

General Admission tickets for the 2003 BMW Charity Pro-Am at The Cliffs can be purchased for $20 by calling (864) 297-1660 or through one of the 48 selected charities.
