News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda — With two months to go until the 2022 Butterfield Bermuda Championship, the Birdies for Charity program has already partnered with more than 40 local charities as it continues its fundraising drive.
Members of the public who wish to support a range of worthy causes can see their charitable contributions go further by using the ‘Donate Now’ section on the tournament website. The registered charities will receive every penny donated in addition to a match of up to 10% until the end of November.
The Birdies for Charity program, established by the PGA TOUR in 1971, is an integral part of many official PGA TOUR tournaments and helps to raise millions of dollars for the host communities.
Danielle Baiunco, Tournament Director of the Butterfield Bermuda Championship, said: “Last year, the Butterfield Bermuda Championship raised nearly $650,000 for almost 50 charities. This was an amazing achievement but our goal is to build on that success. We want to maximize our charitable impact and raise more money for more Bermuda charities. Of course, we can’t do that alone. We encourage charities, who haven’t already, to register and invite everyone who can to donate, no amount is too small to benefit from the matching opportunity.”
Participating charities are also able to take advantage of the BF&M Volunteer Program. Volunteers who work three shifts during the tournament itself, which range from four to six hours each depending on the committee, can choose to donate their time to their chosen charity, which will receive $200.
