Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa is so thankful to be participating again in Birdies For Charity! This exciting program provides an opportunity for anyone to get involved with the Principal Charity Classic and support a nonprofit organization they care about right here in the Des Moines community. Programs like Birdies for Charity help support life-changing mentoring relationships between Bigs and Littles. Help us continue that impact!

Participants of Birdies For Charity can support the nonprofit organization of their choice by making a one-time flat donation or pledging a certain dollar or cents amount for each birdie shot by the golfers at the Principal Charity Classic. In golf, a “birdie” is a score of one stroke better than “par” for any golf hole on the golf course. “Par” is the normal expected score of a golf professional on any given hole. For example, on a par 4, a score of 3 is a birdie.

The best part about this program, however, is that the Principal Charity Classic will provide a 10% match on every donation thanks to Sammons Financial Group.

And that’s not all. If you make a pledge with the Birdies For Charity program, you will be given the opportunity to guess the total number of birdies made by PGA TOUR Champions Tour players during the 2017 Principal Charity Classic. One correct prediction will win a grand prize. Participants in this contest will also be entered to win other prizes through random drawings conducted by The Principal Charity Classic.

Be a part of something BIG this year, and make your pledge to Birdies For Charity today- sign up online here. Together, we can create brighter futures, better schools and stronger communities for all.
