Birdies for Charity
The RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing is Hilton Head Island’s biggest sporting and social event – and thanks to Birdies for Charity, it’s also the fast, easy and fun way to raise money for your organization. Birdies for Charity is a no-cost opportunity for your organization to connect with donors while tapping into the excitement of South Carolina’s only PGA TOUR golf tournament. 100% of the funds you raise through pledges goes directly to your organization. In addition, the Heritage Classic Foundation will contribute an extra 20% to each of the participating charities. It’s one golf tournament where everybody wins!
Birdies for Charity is like a walk-a-thon, but instead of donating per mile, participants make a pledge for every birdie made at the RBC Heritage presented by Boeing. Donors have the flexibility to pay in advance or to be billed after the tournament, and they also make a one-time donation.
Last year, the pros shot 1,321 birdies during the tournament.
If 1,300 birdies are made during the 2014 event:
1 cent pledge = $13.00 total pledge
3 cent pledge = $39.00 total pledge
10 cent pledge = $130.00 total pledge
$1.00 pledge = $1,300 total pledge
In 2013, the Heritage Classic Foundation distributed $687,672 to local nonprofits thanks to the Birdies for Charity Program, pushing the total to more than $4.3 million since 2000.
