RALEIGH, N.C. -  Today, Rex Healthcare is making an official call for volunteers to be a part of The Rex Hospital Open. A premier professional golf tournament and part of the Nationwide PGA Tour, The Rex Hospital Open will be held at TPC Wakefield Plantation in Raleigh, June 6-12. Volunteers will have the opportunity to see some of the nation's best up-and-coming golfers in action, and also receive an exclusive tournament package.

Last year, more than 500 local volunteers donated their time to the tournament, which raises funds to support programs and patient services at Rex. This year, the tournament will benefit the N.C. Cancer Hospital at Rex.

This year's volunteers will receive:
• Volunteer badge - valid for admission and volunteer parking throughout tournament week
• Six weekly grounds badges for volunteers' guests of choice
• A purple NIKE golf shirt
• An Imperial Headwear hat or visor
• Two invitations to the Volunteer Appreciation Party on Saturday, June 11, which includes complimentary food and beverages and a concert by award-winning country artist Heidi Newfield
• Meals during each shift
• Volunteers who work a minimum of three shifts (a shift is approximately four to six hours each) will get one transferable TPC Wakefield Plantation golf voucher good for free golf with a $30 cart fee.

As one of 26 events on the 2011 Nationwide Tour schedule, The Rex Hospital Open provides spectators a chance to see up-and-coming professional golfers compete for a chance to play on golf's greatest stage - the PGA TOUR. Two out of every three PGA TOUR players have Nationwide Tour roots. Nationwide Tour graduates have gone on to win 300 PGA TOUR events, including majors and PLAYERS Championships and have competed in Presidents and Ryder Cups.
