Birdies for Charity 2020
We are so excited that Steve and Diane Reason reached out about including NF Midwest in this year’s Birdies for Charity event again. Birdies for Charity will be July 6-12 as part of the John Deere Classic series. Last year, 13.82 million dollars was raised for 542 charities. According to the Birdies for Charities website, overall the John Deere Classic ranks among the top three in charitable giving on the PGA TOUR.
We are thrilled and thankful that NF Midwest will be a part of this event again! So, how does it work? You pledge an amount per birdie, so if you pledged a penny per birdie in 2019 you would have pledged $20.91 (as there were 2,091 birdies last year). So easy. But it gets even better…because John Deere covers all of the expenses 100% of the profits go to NF Midwest or the other participating charities and just when you thought that was it…John Deere also gives an additonal 5-10% on top of your pledge. Pretty awesome right?
There is one more fun part of this event, if you guess the correct amount of birdies shot you could win a 2 year lease on a Lexus! Here are the Birdie totals from past tournaments: 2091 (2019); 2355(2018); 1918(2017); 1982(2016); 1990 (2015); 2040 (2014); 2142 (2013); 2113 (2012); 2160 (2011).
