For questions about the Birdies for Charity Program, please contact Samantha Murray at 770-232-5138 or Samantha@MitsubishiElectricClassic.com.
Participating charities solicit pledges from supporters and donors based on the number of birdies made by professionals during the three official tournament rounds. Charities receive 100% of every donation collected and receive up to a 10% match, for reaching $1,000 in pledges.
How does Birdies for Charity work?
Every birdie made during the Mitsubishi Electric Classic means dollars for charity! Charities receive 100% of every donation collected and receive up to a 10% match, for reaching $1,000 in pledges.
There are two ways to pledge:
A per-birdie amount for every birdie made by the professionals during the three official tournament rounds, or a one-time flat donation.
Minimum per-birdie $.01
Minimum flat donation $1.00
For example, a pledge of $.10 per birdie: $.10 x 823 birdies in 2016 =$82.30
(The number of birdies can fluctuate due to unforeseeable conditions.)
What is a Birdie?
A “birdie” is a score of one stroke better than “par” for any golf hole on the course. “Par” is the normal expected score of a golf professional on any given hole. For example, on a par 4 hole, a score of 3 is a birdie.
Charities receive up to a 10% match, for reaching $1,000 in pledges. Charities eligible to receive matching funds will receive up to $.10 for every $1.00 collected, up to $100,000 in collected pledges*. After the tournament, the Mitsubishi Electric Classic will invoice each donor up to three times to collect their pledges. Once all the money is collected, the tournament delivers checks and a detailed list of donors to each charity by the end of August 2017.
