What is Birdies for Charity?
Birdies for Charity is a fundraising program designed to give local nonprofits the opportunity to raise money by generating contributions based on the number of birdies made by Champions Tour players at the Regions Tradition.
A birdie is one stroke better than par, the normal expected score, and there is an average of more than 900 birdies made during a major championship golf tournament. So, the minimum pledge of $0.05 would equal $45.00 donated to the Freshwater Land Trust. We receive 100% of the contributions after the tournament, and all funds will directly benefit our conservation work within our eight county region.
When can I donate?
The Regions Tradition tournament kicks off on May 13th, but donations can be made at any time. In 2014, $314,000 was raised toward local charities and nonprofit organizations. Your pledge today of $0.05 or more or a flat donation of $20 or more can help the Freshwater Land Trust protect water quality and conserve open space.
There are several benefits to donors who contribute to the Birdies for Charity event:
- Any donor who makes a pledge or a flat donation to the Freshwater Land Trust is eligible to win a Good-Any-One-Day Grounds ticket for the Regions Tradition at Shoal Creek Country Club, as well as a FreshwaterLand Trust carrier cooler, hat, t-shirt and water bottle. We’ll draw winners throughout the tournament, so donate any time to be entered to win!
- All donors will also be able to participate in the “Guess the Birdies Contest,” when they make their donation online or via the pledge card.This allows entrants to guess the number of birdies that will be made during the tournament for a grand prize of two Weekly Gallery ticket packages to the 2016 U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, PA. Guess by May 13th for your chance to win when you are making your donation.
- Donors are also entered into a weekly giveaway drawing each Friday, which includes prizes such as gift certificates, 2015 Iron Bowl tickets, a Joe Namath autographed football, and more! Follow the Freshwater Land Trust on Facebook to stay updated on the weekly prize giveaway.
