Bethlehem, Pennsylvania; June 2, 2022 – The nearly 2,000 volunteers at the US Senior Open Championship have a treat for them, in addition to watching some of their favorite golfers. Service Electric Cable TV & Communications is the regional presenter for the Volunteer Headquarters, a 3,200 square foot air-conditioned tent that will serve as the operations center for all volunteer activities. Thanks to local partners, Service Electric organized daily breakfast and snacks, as well as a week full of surprises for the volunteers.
Inside the head office, each day, volunteers will have the opportunity to enter a raffle to win a variety of prizes offered by Service Electric and its regional partners. These participants will also be automatically entered into a final draw to win additional prizes at the end of the championship. The headquarters will be adorned with golf-themed decorations, as well as daily giveaways, games, a selfie station with “famous golfers” and other fun activities. The championship will be shown on four large TVs inside the tent throughout the event, giving volunteers a view of the US Senior Open action while taking a break from duty.
Additionally, Service Electric Network (SEN) will be on hand in the tent to speak with volunteers and record footage for “The Mike Zambelli Show” to air in the following weeks. Breakfast and snacks will be served daily, courtesy of Service Electric partners including Red Robin, McDonald’s, Burger King, Factory LLC and Wegmans, and raffle prizes will be awarded to volunteers at Copperhead Grille, Hotel Bethlehem , Steel Club, X-Golf, J Hilburn and others.
“We are thrilled that so many local businesses have partnered with us for this event,” said Mike Starner, senior manager of business development and government affairs at Service Electric. “We want to let volunteers know they are appreciated, so our marketing team and sponsors have prepared an amazing experience for them. I’m sure it will make their day!
“Service Electric’s focus on volunteers at the 2022 US Senior Open is so fitting because, to put it simply, we couldn’t run the championship without them. We are grateful for Service Electric’s support of the 42nd US Senior Open and their unique ability to help us not only show our appreciation to volunteers, but also shine a light on their stories.
The 42nd US Senior Open runs from Tuesday, June 21 through Sunday, June 26 at Saucon Valley Country Club. A special “Volunteer Appreciation Day” will be held on Monday, June 20, where Saucon Valley Country Club volunteers and members can preview the championship and learn about the course layout and requirements.
