Birdies for Charity
“In golf, “par” is the normal expected score on any given hole. Every one of the 18 holes on a golf course has its own “par” assigned to it. A “birdie” is one stroke under par for a hole, possibly derived from the term “It flew like a bird” to indicate a good shot.”
Birdies for Charity® is a fundraising program designed to give participating charities the opportunity to generate contributions through the Valero Texas Open. Birdies for Charity is a no-cost program that gives 100% of the funds raised back to our organization. Funds are generated by soliciting pledges from individuals and corporations. 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 Valero Texas Open. Donations are accepted from anywhere around the world and are tax deductible.
To support FEAST, please visit the Birdies for Charity Donation Page where you can pledge as little as $0.01 per birdie. What a fun way to give back to FEAST! The first page of the donation form is for your contact information. The second page is where you will designate FEAST as your charity, fill in your pledge amount, and guess the number of birdies that will be made during the 2015 Valero Texas Open. Once you make your pledge or flat donation, you will receive a confirmation email from Birdies for Charity. Payment will be collected after the Valero Texas Open once the actual number of birdies is calculated.
Attend the Valero Texas Open, April 20-23, 2017 at TPC San Antonio and stop by the Donation Station in Fan Fest at main gate entrance. As a donor, check in and get entered into a drawing to earn the charity you supported a $20,000 donation in your honor. Each day attended, earns additional entries into the drawing. The lucky donor will also win a wonderful and exciting prize of their own to enjoy.
“Guess the Birdies” Contest
To add excitement, donors can participate in the “Guess the Birdies” contest. Participants simply guess how many birdies will be made from Monday and Wednesday’s pro-ams on the host course (AT&T Oaks Course) including amateurs and pros, in addition to the birdies made by the pros, Thursday-Sunday of competition.
The individual with the correct guess wins the grand prize, a Stay-and-Play Package to TPC San Antonio and JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort. Ties are determined through a tiebreaker event. And if no one guesses correctly, the computer will randomly select the grand prize winner.
The Stay-and-Play Gift Package includes a three (3) night stay at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country along with 2 rounds of golf for two at TPC San Antonio, spa service for two and breakfast for two each morning. The golf rounds or spa service may be traded for a dinner for two in 18 Oaks Steak House.
