Birdies for Charity

Birdies for Charity

Birdies for Charity is a one-day fundraising event to support non-industry charitable organizations throughout the area. Illinois PGA Professionals tee-it-up to play up to 90 holes in one day with the goal of making as many birdies as possible. Donors make a financial pledge per birdie to support each Professional. Illinois PGA Professionals celebrated the event’s 10th anniversary in 2020 and surpassed the $2 million mark and have raised $2.31 million for deserving children’s charities such as JDRF Illinois Chapter, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital and the Illinois PGA Foundation. The Central Illinois PGA Chapter also hosts its own Birdies for Charity event, raising funds for OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois and other deserving organizations.
