As news spread of Jim McAnaw and fellow KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship volunteers generosity to raise over $15,000 for the Lakeland COVID-19 Response Fund, former champions of the event showed their thanks and support.
The funds raised were inspired by Jim McAnaw of Kalamazoo, Michigan, who was offered reimbursement for the cost of his volunteer uniform package, but had other ideas. McAnaw asked that his fee be given to support Spectrum Health Lakeland instead and his act inspired more than 130 more volunteers to do the same.
2019 champion Ken Tanigawa, 2018 champion Paul Broadhurst and 2012 champion Roger Chapman submitted videos to the Championship team to make sure the volunteers of Southwest Michigan understood how appreciated they are.
The LPGA also showed its support of the Harbor Shores volunteers as a part of its #WeClapForeYou campaign.
