Birdies for Charity returns at Butterfield Bermuda Championship
The Butterfield Bermuda Championship has announced that the island-wide charitable initiative Birdies for Charity, which successfully raised $650,000 for local charities in 2021, will run once again this year.
Birdies for Charity is an easy and effective matching fund programme where the tournament sponsors match fundraising efforts made by participating charities for a six-month period, starting in July to the end of November. Organisations receive every penny they raise, plus up to a 10 per cent match on every donation.
Bermuda charities and non-profit organisations can register to join the programme via the website. Charities are encouraged to apply by July 12.
An orientation meeting to share more information about the programme and how to get involved will take place on Friday at noon at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute.
“Each PGA Tour event is committed to maximising charitable giving and having a positive impact on the local community. The Butterfield Bermuda Championship is no different and we are incredibly proud to have raised $1.1 million since 2019,” said tournament director Danielle Baiunco.
“It is our partners who make this charitable impact possible and we cannot thank them enough. We appreciate the generous support of Butterfield, the Bermuda Tourism Authority, BF&M, the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, Digicel, Somerset Re and Axa XL, and we look forward to doing more together this year. We encourage any and all local charities to register and take advantage of this opportunity to increase donations in support of their efforts.”
