John Deere Classic Birdies for Charity
The Rockford Park District joined with The John Deere Classic Birdies for Charity program in 2010, and to date has raised more than $6,000 for Rockford Park District youth golf programs. The 2012 campaign generated more than $3,000, which will be used in the PGA Sports Academy PE curriculum.
There are two ways to help raise funds for the program - simply pledge a one-time donation OR pledge one cent or more per birdie that will be made Wednesday - Sunday during the tournament by the PGA Tour Pros. A grand prize will be given by the John Deere Classic to the person who guesses the correct number (in the event of a tie, winners will be randomly selected).
