Support Greater Richmond SCAN during the
Dominion Energy Charity Classic through
Birdies for Charity Presented by TowneBank!
The Birdies for Charity Presented by TowneBank program enables Richmond-area charities to use the Dominion Energy Charity Classic tournament as a fundraising platform.
The program gives SCAN an opportunity to generate contributions through flat donations or based on the number of “birdies” made by PGA TOUR Champions players during the tournament.
In addition, the PGA TOUR will donate an additional 10 percent on donations made through Birdies for Charity, so SCAN will receive an additional 10 percent of total pledges!
DONATION TYPES (Donations can be made at any time)
- A one-time flat donation (minimum donation of $25).
- A per-birdie donation (option to cap donation). Total donation amount will be determined based on the number of birdies made by PGA TOUR Champions professionals during the Dominion Energy Charity Classic (Oct. 19-21, 2018).
WHAT IS A BIRDIE
- “Par” is the normal expected score on any given hole on the golf course. A “birdie” is a score of one stroke better than “par” for any golf hole. For example, on a par-4 hole, a score of 3 is a birdie.
- In 2017, 789 birdies were made during the Dominion Energy Charity Classic (i.e. A donation of $.10 per birdie would equal a total donation of $78.90).
