Engaging and fun marathon with pledges, fundraiser for Foundation, local charities and Section Branding
Carrie Williams, Executive Director, Illinois PGA
Summary: Birdies for Charity Program – The Illinois PGA Foundation’s Birdies for Charity is a one-day fundraising event to support non-industry charitable organizations throughout the area. First conducted in the North Texas Section and brought to the Illinois Section by Travis Johns, former North Texas Section member, Illinois PGA professionals tee-it-up to play 90 holes in one day with the goal of making as many birdies as they can. Donors make a financial pledge per birdie to support each Professional. Illinois PGA Professionals have helped raise over $1.5 million for deserving children’s charities since the event’s inception in 2011.
