Birdies for Charity Helps Shelter Improve Life: Chip In!

Birdies for Charity Shelter

It’s almost time for the annual John Deere Classic golf tournament, and with it comes the Birdies for Charity fundraising pledge program. Humility of Mary Shelter is participating in this great program again this year. Every penny of your Birdies for Charity pledge to us at the Shelter will benefit our program and provide emergency shelter for adults in our community who are experiencing a housing crisis. In addition, your contribution raises our total and qualifies us at Shelter to receive a bigger second check from the tournament profits.

Birdies for Charity makes donating enjoyable. By participating you become eligible to win hundreds of prizes donated by the tournament sponsors. This year’s Grand Prize, for instance, is a two year lease on a 2015 Lexus NX. And, there are many others, like:

  • A John Deere riding mower
  • A John Deere Classic teemarker signed by the 2015 John Deere Classic champion
  • $500 credit to be used at any local John Deere dealership

You can choose to make a one-time donation or pledge a given amount for each birdie made during the golf tournament. All pledges must be made on an official pledge card you we can provide for you. Call the office [563/322-8065] so we can get it to you or stop in and pick it up. Complete the card and submit it. Birdies extends through the John Deere Classic, July 6-12, 2015. Enjoy the fun.

You’ll watch the tournament with even greater interest. And, win or lose, you’ll enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that you’ve helped a great cause. When you donate to us at Shelter, you’re helping some of the most vulnerable members our our Quad Cities community. That strengthens all of us in the Quad Cities Area.
